Annual Student Fee

What is the orchestra student fee?

Welcome to O'Connor High School Orchestra!

We are proud to offer a comprehensive program that provides students with a diverse range of learning experiences and performance opportunities.


Our program is funded by the district, but unfortunately, the amount we receive is limited. To supplement our funding, we require an annual student fee and fundraising.

The orchestra fees and fundraising monies are important components of our program.


Let's break down some of what it covers:

  • Orchestra T-Shirt for Casual Uniform: Each student receives an orchestra t-shirt, which serves as part of our casual uniform during rehearsals and performances.

  • Clinicians for Region, All-State & UIL: Bringing in professional clinicians enhances our students’ musical skills. These experts provide valuable insights and coaching during rehearsals and workshops.

  • UIL & Related Fees: Participating in the University Interscholastic League (UIL) involves entry fees for competitions, evaluations, and other related expenses.

  • Instrument Repairs & Equipment: We allocate funds to maintain and repair instruments. Ensuring that our students have well-functioning instruments is essential for their musical growth.

  • Rental of Formal Uniforms: Our formal performances require elegant attire. The orchestra fee covers the rental of formal uniforms for concerts and special events.

  • Field Trip Bus Fees: Orchestra field trips, whether to attend performances or workshops, involve transportation costs. The fee contributes to these expenses.

  • Automatic Booster Membership: By paying the orchestra fee, parents automatically become members of our booster organization. Boosters play a vital role in supporting our program.

  • End-of-Year Banquet, Senior Scholarships, Concerts, and More: The fee contributes to our end-of-year banquet, scholarships for graduating seniors, and various concerts throughout the year.


Mrs. Johnson and Mr. Jung, our dedicated orchestra directors, are committed to nurturing our students’ musical talents. They provide guidance, mentorship, and opportunities for growth.

Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to a harmonious year of music-making! 🎻🎶
