Orchestra in the Schools cultivates the joy of musical expression.

We create opportunities for young musicians to build confidence
through the rigor and cooperation required to produce music together.

We work to foster responsible adults who appreciate artistic beauty. 

We provide students throughout Monterey County 

an opportunity to learn an instrument, be a part of an orchestra,

and perform with students from other schools.

We are known for our outstanding small group instrumental instruction.
