USD 490 Orchestra

The El Dorado Public School Orchestra program offers instruction to students in grades five through high school. Dating back to the 1930's, generations of students have found a musical voice playing in elementary, middle, and high school orchestras.

El Dorado's Orchestras have participated in events ranging from the Kansas State University String Fling for middle schoolers to the Winter Park Music Festival on the high school level.

Students begin instruction on violin, viola, or violoncello during the fifth grade year. Beginning classes are offered at the school during the academic day. They continue through middle school, making their way into the El Dorado High School Orchestra beginning the freshman year.
