As music educators and students, we set as our goals the following:

  • to improve and grow as musicians by performing the finest music in the orchestra repertoire.

  • to serve as a musical outreach to our community and increase awareness of the wealth of musical talent among our young people.

  • to provide opportunities for performing in various environments including concert tours appropriate to the ages and musical abilities of the students.

  • to encourage growth as citizens as well as musicians.
