This orchestra is a performance-based organization. The students will continue to improve their technical skills on their instrument as well as expand their knowledge of orchestra literature through rehearsal and performance. NESA Orchestra students perform four to five concerts which includes the chamber music concert. Students have the opportunity to participate in the TMEA Region and All-State auditions, UIL Solo/Ensemble Contests, and collaboration projects with other NESA departments such as musicals and film-scores.
Students take this class to study small chamber works in their instrumentation. They also study orchestra music in sectionals. This class is divided into two sections: 1) Students who play wind, brass, percussion instruments, piano or guitar; 2) Students who play stringed instruments
