Welcome to Orchestra!
We are proud in the Issaquah School District to be able to offer an orchestra program that serves students who want to pursue orchestra as a hobby as well as the serious music student with higher ambitions. The Orchestra 1 class is Greenwood Orchestra and is for any student who has played a string instruments for more than three years. No audition is required for this ensemble. Chamber Orchestra is an audition-based group for the more advanced player with three or more years of experience. Orchestra 2 is Evergreen Philharmonic is an audition-based full orchestra. For more information about auditioning for Evergreen Philharmonic please CLICK HERE. A new website is currently under construction for Evergreen. Also, the audition window has moved due to scheduling. Auditions will now be due by 11:00PM the Friday before February break. This deadline also applies to Chamber Strings.
Ms. Leah Weitzsacker is the Issaquah High School orchestra director. She also teaches one class at Skyline High School. Ms. Weitzsacker directs the Greenwood Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra, and Evergreen Philharmonic. She would be happy to answer any question you may have about the program.
