Music and band program

Orange Public School Music Program

Orange Public School has a strong music program. Students have many options for joining music groups through the school. Regular performances are given, including entries into the Orange Eisteddfod.

Tuition is provided for students in instrumental groups, catering to both beginners and more advanced students. The school has a number of instruments available for hire or these may be sourced locally. Students then join together to experience performing as a member of a group.

The school band contains woodwind (flutes, clarinets & saxaphones), brass (trombones, euphoniums, cornets, trumpets and tenor horn) and percussion (drums, keyboards etc) instruments. The school string orchestra contains violins, violas, cellos and double bass. There is also a guitar group.

Choir Program

There are three school choirs (Stage 1, 2 & 3), which are available to students from Years 1-6. In choir, students learn vocal warm ups, singing techniques, how to follow a conductor, how to perform as part of a group and musicianship. The engaging repertoire includes unison and part-singing, and is voice and age-appropriate.
