Orchestra and Strings
Nearly 25 percent of Canterbury students play violin, viola or cello for the Middle and High School orchestras. Students also have the opportunity to perform in small ensembles and to compete at ISSMA.
The strings and orchestra program is under the direction of Colleen Tan.
Students may continue to study strings through Middle School, becoming members of the fifth-grade strings ensemble and then in grades 6-8 becoming part of the Middle School Orchestra. The Middle School Chamber Orchestra is a performance based group that meets before school for students interested in developing their skills further.
