New to Cambridge High School?

Welcome! The Cambridge Orchestra program accepts students new to Cambridge High School with at least two years of previous experience on violin, viola, cello, bass, or harp on a rolling basis throughout the year. These years do not have to be the two previous school years - if you played in elementary or early middle school and want to get back into playing you are welcome to join!


At registration, tell your counselor that you are interested in taking orchestra. Students then have two options. You can enroll in Symphonic Orchestra (Intermediate Orchestra) which does not require an audition or contact Mrs. Justice at for audition instructions for our advanced ensembles (Philharmonic and Chamber Orchestras). Loaner instruments are available for the audition if needed. 


All orchestras at Cambridge High School are curricular ensembles that meet every day during the regular school day and perform several evening concerts throughout the year. Please visit the "About Us" tab above to read more about each ensemble.
