The Clarence High School Orchestra Program is comprised of weekly small group lessons and daily orchestra rehearsals, which take place during the school day.
Orchestras are ability-based groups whose membership is determined by audition. The Concert Orchestra and Symphony Orchestra rehearse daily, and each gives at least three public performances per year. In addition, for quite a few years, the Symphony has performed at graduation. The high school also has a Chamber Orchestra- an extracurricular ensemble that rehearses Friday mornings before school. The Chamber Orchestra performs during the high school orchestra concerts.
The high school orchestras are conducted by Mr. Shaw. More detailed information may be found on his teacher page.
