Warsaw+High+School+Orchestra
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!

Upcoming Events:

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.

Orchestra Vocabulary List for 2016-2017 is in Page Docs on the right, as well as NEW Quiz Dates for 2016-2017.

Every other week we will have an orchestra vocabulary quiz, and the weeks in between we will have a theory worksheet or quiz.

ADVANCED ORCHESTRA CLASS: be prepared for extra playing opportunities that are not on our concert schedule. You will not be required to play extra concerts, but you can sometimes earn extra credit and of course it is a great way to get WCHS orchestra in the public eye! We have a VERY BIG Advanced Orchestra class this year- 39 students!

Concert Dates for 2016-2017 are in the HS Orchestra Handbook which is in PageDocs on the right. This year students are required to play in the Fall Concert, Christmas Gala, Spring Contest in April (advanced orch. only), and Spring Concert in May. Make sure you have the concert dates on your calendar.
I look forward to working with all of you in orchestra class this year!
