(CHAMBER) ORCHESTRA ROSTER

(as of June 18, 2015)


I appreciate your patience, but after some long consideration with the updated direction/vision of the program, here is the current roster for the 2015-2016 Advanced (Chamber) Orchestra.


Congratulations to the 25 students who earned a confirmed spot into the ensemble.


For some students, they received a provisional status for the group. They can enroll in the class, but do not have a confirmed position in the group yet. They will be reevaluated during the 1st week of the Fall Semester to determine their status in the ensemble.


Keep visiting this website (Orchestras tab) for the updated repertoire for assessment/reevaluation.


For those who did not make either of the above options, I truly appreciate you taking the time to audition for the group. It is getting more competitive each year, and it could truly benefit you to keep playing in our very strong 3rd period - String Orchestra.


Feel free to contact Mr. Sebastian (rsebastian@ggusd.us) with any questions and/or concerns.
