The Duxbury High School music department offers opportunities for students to play in three orchestras. The Concert Orchestra is open to all string players, while the Chamber Orchestra and the String Ensemble require an audition for acceptance. The DHS Orchestras have been featured in orchestra competitions and have won numerous awards.
The high school music program also offers a co-curricular full symphonic orchestra. This group combines strings, brass, woodwinds, and percussion, and they rehearse on Monday nights.
Students in all levels of the orchestra program also have the opportunity to take private lessons from either professionals or other high level students. If interested, send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Duxbury Middle School orchestra program includes two 7th & 8th grade orchestras and 6th grade orchestra class. The Junior Chamber Orchestra is also offered as a co-curricular group. This is open to string students grades 6-8. Acceptance requires an audition in September, and the ensemble rehearses on Thursdays after school.
String students begin the program in the 5th grade at the Alden School with small group instruction (SGI) starting in the fall.
