Westchester District Charter Orchestra

Arts Youth Empowerment Westchester District Charter Orchestra

The Westchester District Charter Orchestra is a program where children continue playing their string instruments at a faster pace and with an eye toward performances.

The District Charter Orchestra will rehearse repertoire and technique in their individual after school classes throughout the year. Once every month, they will join student players and teachers from around the Westchester area for a full rehearsal, building ensemble skills, playing technique, and community.

Two primary performances are currently planned for the orchestra, one in December and one in June.

The opportunity to make music with their classmates as well as with their peers from across the county is invaluable. Students learn to collaborate, express, create, and use hard work and discipline to be part of something beautiful and bigger than themselves.

How it works

  • Auditions for fall semester will begin October 1st.
  • Selected students will meet at a designated location to rehearse with other students from the around Westchester area.
  • Students will then perform in December and June for a county wide performance.
