Advanced Orchestra


The Advanced Orchestra is the top string ensemble at Torrey Pines High School.  Students perform a challenging repertory of classical and contemporary works at the collegiate level.  This ensemble includes our highest level string players and affords them an opportunity to hone their musicianship and technical skills.


The Advanced Orchestra has many performance opportunities throughout the year including concerts, school events and competitions.  The orchestra competes each year at the local SCSBOA Festival and has earned a trip to Regionals every year, where it consistently receives Unanimous Superior ratings in the Collegiate AA Category.


Students in this class have the opportunity to perform in chamber ensembles such as string quartets.  The ensemble also performs at least once a year with the Intermediate Orchestra and top wind students to form the Full Orchestra.

Enrollment in Advanced Orchestra is by audition only.
