OPA Meetings

General Membership Meetings:

All orchestra parents and guardians are Orchestra Parents Association members. 

Parents are welcome to join our meetings, which are usually held on the first Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Samohi Orchestra Room (M101). For the time being, our meetings are held via Zoom. Please check our calendar for dates and our emails for the zoom links.

Executive Board Meetings:

Executive Board Meetings are held directly after the General Membership Meeting, or by special arrangement. All members are welcome at both the General and Exec Board meetings. During safer-at-home orders the meetings will be held the Thursday prior to the General Meeting, also via zoom.
