WRHS Orchestra News
Welcome Back to School!
Mr. Baggett is looking forward to the 2019-2020 school year. We have many exciting events and activities planned for the school year. Please find Orchestra related files such as music, program handbook, and other required forms on the resources page.
The following items are required for every rehearsal:
- Instrument in working order
- Black 1″ 3 ring binder with pockets
- Rosin (Information located in handbook)
If you need to purchase or upgrade your instrument, please contact the Violin Shop Tampa.
With the beginning of every school year, the Orchestra Program collects a fee of $100 per student. This “Fair Share” is used to support Orchestra related activities specifically transportation to MPA, MPA fees, All-State Fees, Clinician Fees, Orchestra T-shirt, additional sheet music, and anything else that involves the general orchestra budget. This does not cover the cost of upcoming Disney trip or any Solo and Ensemble requiring a piano accompanist. More information regarding Fair Share will be provided at our Meet and Greet. If you’d like to make a Fair Share Payments on line, please click here.
First Orchestra Booster Meeting
The Boosters will be holding our first meeting on Wednesday August 28 @ 7 PM in the Music Building. Please come join us to learn about all the activities planned for the School year and how you can help! The booster is a non-profit (501-C3) organization that is committed to supporting the WRHS Orchestra program. The Booster program strives to promote leadership, teamwork, and a strong work ethic both on the performance arena and in the classroom among our students. Joining the Booster program plus volunteering your time at school events are great ways to promote student and school spirit in and among the community in which we live.
If you are interested in chaperoning a field trip or assisting with other Orchestra activities, please submit an application via the Pasco Country Raptor System. You can complete the volunteer application here.
