Acerca de nuestro Programa de Orquesta

Each year, though the extracurricular performance offerings may vary from year to year, there are a set of performance opportunities that students and parents can expect each year.  They are listed below along with information sheets.

ORCHESTRA CONCERTS

There are four concerts per year: the Fall Concert in October, the Winter Concert in December, the Pre-MPA Concert in February, and the Spring Concert in late April/early May.  All concerts begin at 7pm.  Students and parents can check specific dates on our calendar page. 

SOLO & ENSEMBLE

Each year in February, high school orchestra students may participate in District Solo & Ensemble through the Florida Orchestra Association.  Students must sign up through their director.  A sample participant contract and a page of helpful tips can be found below:

MUSIC PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT

Each year, every orchestra in the DPHS Orchestra Program participates in Music Performance Assessment.  This is an adjudicated (scored) event where each ensemble performs for a panel of three certified judges and is graded based on their overall stage performance & sight-reading abilities.  The scores assigned can be: Superior (1), Excellent (2), Good (3), Fair, (4), Poor (5).  Below is a sample information sheet & itinerary.
