History of the O'Connor High School Orchestra
Opening with the school in 1998, the O'Connor High School Orchestra has flourished for almost 20 years. There are 4 performing orchestras that make up the group: Varsity Full Orchestra, Non-Varsity Orchestra, Sub Non-Varsity A Orchestra, and Sub Non-Varsity B Orchestra. There are currently 185 students in the program.
The OHS Orchestra has performed strongly and received the highest ratings at U.I.L. Concert/Sight-Reading competitions each year. The group also consistently performs as a Symphony Orchestra combining with the woodwinds, brass, and percussion sections of the band. Their perform high-quality repertoire at a high level of musicality. The orchestra also participates in U.I.L. State Solo & Ensemble with many students receiving Superior awards. We hope to keep these successes a long-lasting tradition.
We are fortunate at O'Connor High School to have dedicated students, teachers, administration, staff, and parents. It has a strong sense of community and pride that is evident in all of its programs. Thank you for visiting the orchestra page! We appreciate your ongoing support!
