Sequoit Orchestras

The ACHS Orchestra Department is a major part of the school campus and community at Antioch Community High School. Our students can be found throughout school participating in a wide variety of activities, and the music program is building a tradition of excellence in performance. The orchestras are under the direction of Mr. Michael Riggs. Our ensembles participate in many events throughout the year including school concerts, college and professional festivals, competitions and district festivals. At ACHS, we strive for outstanding string and full orchestras, chamber music and solo performances, emphasizing the journey rather than the destination. Our performances are a celebration of quality work.
