The Lincoln Junior High Orchestra program includes a String Orchestra at each grade level, the Chamber Orchestra, and Bluegrass Strings, and provides numerous additional performance opportunities for all students. Bluegrass Strings is an extra ensemble open to every Lincoln orchestra student. This ensemble explores a wide variety of music and has additional performance opportunities.
It is our intention to provide a challenging yet enjoyable experience for every student. The orchestra program encourages students to become skilled and enthusiastic musicians in a positive, caring, and safe environment. Meaningful experiences and high expectations engage students and help them reach their fullest potential on the violin, viola, cello, or bass. Through team work, orchestra students develop instrument technique, music literacy, and artistry while at Lincoln.Students typically begin orchestra in 4th grade at one of our elementary schools. They continue from year to year on the same instrument they started learning in 4th grade. This allows students to reach a high skill level at a young age. Students interested in starting orchestra should contact Ms Ruddy for more information.
