 Orchestra is an elective at McCormick. According to the Oxford Royale Academy, students benefit from playing in orchestra because it teaches you teamwork, you have to stay organized and practice between classes, you learn how to cope under pressure, you practice being disciplined, and it helps keep you sane. McCormick students said,  “I play the viola because it is fun and not very many people play it” and “I play the stand up base and I enjoy playing it because, for me, it’s easier to reach the notes and it has a deeper vocal range.” If you have interest in joining the orchestra please speak with Ms. Fox.
