The Symphonic Orchestra is the select orchestra at Schreiber.
Sophomores, juniors and seniors are admitted through an audition
demonstrating superior playing skill. The orchestra will
study and perform works from the orchestral repertoire of the
seventeenth through the twentieth centuries at NYSSMA levels 5
and 6. Students will learn various types and styles of literature,
scales, technique, and historical/biographical information about
the pieces and the composers. Superior sight reading skill is a
must as this orchestra maintains a busy performing schedule.
This orchestra has four rehearsals on a six-day cycle. Students
will receive one string sectional lesson also in a six-day cycle.
