Boone High School is proud to offer 3 levels of orchestra classes:


Chamber Strings (6th period)

This is our top performance group, filled with our most talented string students at Boone High School. This group performs 4 concerts a year and travels to our county music performance assessment. Last year, this group received superior ratings at our district MPA.


Concert Orchestra (2nd period)

This is our intermediate group, filled with talented developing students. This class focuses on the fundamentals of string playing, music reading, and orchestral literature.

 Boone Counterpoint (7nd period)
This class is our top performance group. It is also our smallest group. This group explores a wide range of advanced repertoire and solo work.



After school:

Boone Philharmonic Orchestra (BPO)

This is Boone High Schools full orchestra. Our top string, percussion and wind players combine to perform 1-2 concerts a year.
