Proof in the Product
Wake County Orchestra Directors believe that all students should have access to orchestra in their schools. We know that every student can and will succeed through orchestra, because it fosters the most critical of skills for every student regardless of whether they continue with music. Cooperation, connection-making, creative and critical thinking, and curiosity are but a few of the qualities cultivated by participation in an orchestra program. No matter where life takes them, students will forever benefit from their experience with orchestra. We are here to provide that most excellent experience.
Look below for some of the most notable examples of the experiences we've had in Wake County!
MARK WOOD COMES TO THE TRIANGLE!
In (year), the acclaimed violinist Mark Wood visited the triangle to host an amazing joint concert with several of our schools! After a (how long?) workshop, students from Cary Middle School and Green Hope High School, (and I think? Davis Drive? Maybe Dillard too?)) together with students from Sherwood Githens Middle School in Durham, performed a fantastic concert! Take a look!

AFTER-SCHOOL ACTIVITIES RESUME DURING COVID!
Orchestra has faced no small challenge moving online, but directors have risen to the challenge! Ensembles are rehearsing online, learning editing skills to put together videos, and meeting safely with distance, masks, and sanitation to continue the tradition of making music! Students, we miss you!
WE LIKE TO HAVE FUN
Whether it's dressing up wacky on a concert, doing a lip sync, or a flash-mob, well... We like to have fun. Do you?
