Middleton-Cross Plains Middle School Orchestras
Welcome to Orchestra!
In orchestra, students learn how to play the violin, viola, cello, or string bass. Students meet by grade level for large group orchestra every other day. Kromrey classes meet on A days and Glacier Creek classes meet on B days. Additionally, students have small group instruction every other week to focus on instrument specific skills. All orchestra classes occur during school hours. Various extracurricular offerings or field trips may arise throughout the year.
