THEARC Intermediate Orchestra is coming off its ninth successful year at THEARC! For students with at least one year of playing experience, the intermediate ensemble focuses on performance and the development of ensemble skills. There will be significant emphasis on the development of individual techniques relating to the instrument (violin, viola, cello, or bass) Each week, students receive 90 minutes of instruction and guidance in a full ensemble and instrument-specific small group sectionals with Director Jonathan Jones and Levine faculty.

Please note: There will be an orchestra Open House on September 5th and September 12th to assist students in choosing and sizing an instrument. Please complete the Open House RSVP Form:
