2017-18 Philharmonic Orchestra

We held auditions for next year's 7th period orchestra class. Thanks to everyone that tried out. If you were not selected, I will be e-mailing you soon with feedback on your audition. 

It is possible there may be a small number of additional openings in the Fall, in which case a second round of auditions will be held. Anyone interested in participating should be prepared to audition as soon as school starts. Auditions will be scheduled during the first or second week of classes.

Congratulations to the following students that will be joining Philharmonic in the Fall:

  • Alissa Berman
  • Aimee Fuji
  • Dylan Hartono
  • Jared Huang
  • Matthew Ly
  • Allison Nguyen
  • Hannah Nguyen
  • Jayson Sumabat
  • Isabel Talavera
  • Jordan Wang
