Welcome to the Warsaw High School Orchestra Webpage!
2016-2017 School Year:
From Mrs. Stalcup:
Congratulations to all Advanced Orchestra members who performed at ISSMA Organizational Contest on Sat., April 22 at Snider High School in Fort Wayne. The orchestra received gold ratings from all four judges- a gold in performance and a gold in sight reading! Great job!
Tuesday, May 2: WCHS Spring Orchestra Concert at 7:00 p.m. in the PAC. Students can come for the pitch-in dinner at 5:00 p.m. (in the WCHS cafeteria) and then stay for the concert. There will be plenty of time to change into black clothes! Intermediate Orchestra will play Spring, Intensity, Pirates of the Caribbean and Darkness. Advanced Orchestra will play Queen of Sheba, Yesterday, Rey's Theme, and The River Flows in You. We will also have a couple of small ensembles play in the PAC foyer as people come in.
Thursday, May 11: Warsaw Fine Arts Festival in the PAC. This is an optional concert for orchestra members, but we would like to have as many string players as we can. We will be playing easy movie tunes like Jurassic Park, Rey's Theme, Pirates of the Caribbean, etc. Students need to arrive at 6:00 p.m. and wear bright colors. We will perform in the PAC at 6:30 p.m.
