5th Grade Orchestra

5th Grade Orchestra is offered as an after-school program to all fifth graders in the district. Students meet twice a week: once at their home elementary school and once at River Bluff Middle School for large group ensemble rehearsal. In 5th grade orchestra, students are introduced to playing violin, viola, cello, or bass and learn the basics of their instrument as well as music reading.
