The Orchestra proudly supports a Student Musician Program. Each year, a select number of high school seniors are given the opportunity to perform with the Orchestra for the entire season in order to enhance their performing skills, and foster their musical growth. Student musicians are mentored by adults, and are expected to attend all rehearsals and performances throughout the season. Most of our student musicians intend to pursue music performance or music education as a major in college.

An audition is required. Contact Music Director Stephen Toro at (508) 254-6330 or [email protected] for additional information.


The Orchestra is looking for dynamic, creative college students who wish to further their skills, knowledge, and experience through a voluntary intership.
