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]
