Dear Musicians & Families,
Welcome to Samohi, a great school with a long tradition
of musical excellence. Several factors contribute to the strength of the music program. Among them are our strong elementary and middle school programs, a supportive community, an outstanding music faculty and fine arts coordinator, enthusiastic administrative support, and most important, dedicated parents and students like yourselves. The Samohi orchestra program offers opportunities to all musicians, ranging from entry to advanced levels. We invite you to peruse this website for information about our program, schedules, upcoming events, and more. We are pleased to welcome you to Samohi’s orchestra program and look forward to sharing information with you.

UNLEASHING THE ARTIST IN YOU
CONCERT IN THE CLOUD
Since we cannot be together, we're excited to come together in the cloud to celebrate the work of our dedicated orchestra students. Students will demonstrate their musicality, their newfound mixing skills, and the joy they find in creating music. Support these young musicians by tuning in to the Concert in the Cloud premiere at 7pm on Friday, October 16th.
“Rhythm and harmony find their way into the inward places of the soul.”
DISNEY CONCERT HALL
Two Samohi orchestras had the privilege of performing at
Walt Disney Concert Hall. The Samohi Philharmonic Orchestra performed as part of the West Coast Youth Orchestra Festival. And after a cancelled European Tour, the Samohi Symphony Orchestra performed a concert to raise awareness and much needed funds for the victims of terrorism and violence.
SPAGHETTI & STRINGS
Students don concert attire and perform for guests at the Spaghetti & Strings annual fundraiser. Guests enjoy a delicious pasta dinner during the performance. This fun-filled event hosts a silent auction and drawing. An evening of wonderful music, food, and prizes. All proceeds benefit Samohi orchestras.
