ORCHESTRA AT ST. ED'S
The St. Edward Orchestra was established in 2012-2013 school year. String players and select wind and percussionists will combine forces to perform classical and contemporary music performed at our concerts.
The orchestra meets as a class during the regular school day. The orchestra rehearses every other day, alternating with a study hall during this class period. There is an additional rehearsal on Mondays from 6:30 until 7:10 in winter and spring. Rehearsals for the Pit Orchestra, a volunteer group which performs for our musicals, are after Monday's rehearsals from 7:15 until 9:00pm. The Pit Orchestra also rehearses Sunday afternoons from 3:00 until 5:00. Students who are not able to take Orchestra as a class during the school day and wind/percussion players who will attend the after-school rehearsal may audition to be add-ons for these groups.
