Orchestra Shannon Shanahan - Sixth through Eighth Grade  (Send e-mail)

Welcome to HCMS Orchestra!!!

Our handbook is up and ready for you. Please use the link to Mr. Adams' teacher page to find our Instrumental Handbook located under his downloads. Our overly detailed calendar can be found inside the handbook.

Mr. Adams' page:

Sectionals are up and running! Our sectional schedule can be found under "Cool Links" below. Sectional groups are posted on the board in the orchestra room.

Frequently asked questions:

1. When does Orchestra begin?
a. Our first morning rehearsal will be August 23rd at 7:00 a.m. in the HCMS Orchestra Room. Drop off begins at 6:45.

2. When does Orchestra rehearse?
a. Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 7:00 a.m. Students can be dropped off as early as 6:45.

3. How do sectionals work?
a. Sectionals are run differently at HCMS than they were at Chelsea. Each student will have 1 sectional every 2 weeks during one of their encore classes. Sectionals do not begin the first week or so of school. We are still waiting on our student lists and schedules but I will definitely be in touch once we have all of the details worked out.

4. Where can I find the calendar?
a. Our Instrumental Music Calendar can be found inside the handbook on Mr. Adams teacher page under links. This document is ever changing so we find it easier to keep it on one teacher page so we are always sure to be looking at the most recent version of the calendar.
