Welcome to the SMS Orchestra!
Are you interested in joining the orchestra? Please contact Mr. Geller and arrange for a private instrument screening to try out violin, viola, cello, bass, or harp!
Staley also has a limited number of scholarships to help with instrument rentals, supplies, and fees. We always make it a priority that money should never be a barrier to participating in the program.
The Staley Orchestra will teach students the basics of instrumental string playing with lessons in history, theory and culture!
The orchestra also plans to participate in social events* including:
Field Trips to watch the University of North Texas Symphony
Play Live Nation Video Game Lounge
Card Game Socials
*The Orchestra will continue to follow the guidelines set forth by FISD on Social Events and may have to adapt or cancel events due to the current pandemic.
