Samohi Orchestras General Fund
There is an orchestra opportunity for every interested Samohi student, no matter the level of experience. During COVID-19, this fund is critically important as it funds essential items, like sectional coaches, which enable our music students to stay engaged and continue to grow during distance learning. This fund ensures our students a rich musical experience by providing thinks like sectional coaches, private lesson scholarships, and orchestra classroom supplies. Not all families are in a position to give during these difficult times, but if you are able to do so, please give generously to ensure a vibrant program for these students
Samohi Orchestras Tour Scholarship Fund, which ensures our students rich musical excursions by providing scholarships for those in need. We will not be taking a tour in the 2020-21 school year, but we welcome donations to the fund for future tours.
