 Northbrook Orchestras 

 

The Northbrook orchestra program is divided into three different classes:

Symphony, Philharmonic, and Camerata Orchestra. Placement is based on audition, attitude, attendance and scholarship.

 
 
 
MISSION STATEMENT
 
Goals: Our focus as orchestra team is to develop, improve and encourage a life long love of music in each member of the Northbrook Orchestra. The character goal is RESPONSIBILITY IN ACTION. Throughout the year students will be encouraged to take the initiatives, follow through on them, and take the responsibility for their completion. The musical goal is ADVANCING INDIVIDUAL TECHNIQUE as to enhance each large ensemble’s overall performance. This goal will be represented by the SCALE AND FINGER PATERNS PROJECT in the classes where students will learn 8 major and minor scales, which will address specific needs in the performers to further develop their skills as well as strongly encouraging private lessons in addition to class-time attention. Music selection and style of music we perform throughout the year class will reflect their progress as we are preparing for variety of concerts and venues. Finally it is our goal to represent Northbrook and our community in a positive manner at all times.
