Welcome to the CMS Orchestra!   Rising sixth graders may elect to join the orchestra. We will be studying the violin, viola, cello, and bass.  Sixth graders may switch instruments, if they choose to do so.    This year, the true experience of orchestra begins!  We will form a complete ensemble that will play together over the next three years.  It takes different students, playing together, to form an orchestra. 

There are two Orchestras at Crestwood Middle.  We have our Sixth Grade Orchestra and our Seventh and Eighth Grade Combined Orchestra.  As a member of the CMS orchestra program, you will have many opportunities to share your talent with others, through performance.   As member of your orchestra, you will participate in a minimum of two concerts.   Seventh and Eighth graders will have the opportunity to perform at the District IV Orchestra Festival and Pre- Festival Concerts.  Seventh and eighth graders will also have the opportunity to audition for Regional Orchestra.  Sixth and Seventh graders may be selected to represent our school as a member of the All City Orchestra.  All of these performance opportunities offer us a wonderful way to represent Crestwood Middle. 

If you have any questions, please see Ms. Martini, the Orchestra Director.  Itís going to be an exciting year!  Donít miss out on all of the fun!  Be sure to sign up for Orchestra at Crestwood Middle School.
