Senior High Symphony Orchestra

About the Senior High Symphony

The Senior High Symphony Orchestra is for high school strings in grades 9 through 12 and woodwind, brass and percussion players in grades 8 through 12 and they rehearse on Sundays from 3:30-5:45 PM at the North Dakota State University Challey School of Music.

Youth are selected for each orchestra through auditions and all youth must audition annually for placement in their respected orchestra. FMAYS’ members are chosen on the basis of musical skill and the needs of the orchestras. A strong commitment to attend all rehearsals is expected.  The Senior High Symphony is directed by Jane Linde Capistran.
