Hawk Orchestra

About Hawk Orchestra

Director: Anne McTighe

The objective of Hawk Orchestra is to continue the development of fundamentals introduced in Beginning Orchestra. In addition to strong fundamentals, students will develop effective practice strategies and continue to improve on their ensemble skills. Students will perform a variety of music throughout the year including contemporary orchestra literature, classical, multi-cultural music, and pop music. Students are able to learn an instrument AND participate in choir. Click here to learn more about the objectives of technique classes.

Instruction

  • Students receive a weekly instrument-specific technique class on a rotating basis. The rotating schedule ensures that students are not pulled from the same class each week and only miss a class 1 time every quarter. Click here to learn more about the objectives of technique classes.
  • In addition to their technique class, students attend several weekly full ensemble rehearsals where all of the orchestra instruments are combined. The Hawk Orchestra rehearses as a full ensemble 2 times per week on Wednesday and Friday at 8:00 AM. Click here to learn more about the objectives of full ensemble rehearsals.
