Program History

The SHS Orchestra is currently in it's eighth year under the direction of Mr.Michael Bell. The Orchestra boasts an average of 35 players each semester with complete instrumentation. We incorporate non standard instruments constantly to fulfill our needs as we play Bach to Rock and everything in-between. 4 to 6 performances each year include two formal concerts, one off site (holidays), a pops concert/MPA, and two performances for formal awards events at the school. All students are welcome to bring their outside musical experiences and instruments to the table also. Please consider being a part of a winning organization.
