 The Orchestra is 110-member strong and will be busy preparing great music for a number of performances this year, including our Greece and the Greek Islands Tour in May 2015! Our members are part of a dedicated, fun, and hard-working group who have learned and grown together into an amazing ensemble. The Council Rock community is extremely proud and supportive of our entire music program K-12 and are particularly impressed with our orchestra students! The group will be performing at our school for the annual Winter and Spring Concerts and Orchestra Festival, plus will be heard at many venues outside CR South including the Oxford Valley Barnes and Noble and at Citizens Bank Park performing the National Anthem at the September 8th Phillies Game! Previous performances have included 4 performances at the PMEA (Pennsylvania Music Educators Association) Conference in 2006, 2009, 2012, and 2014, and 3 other overseas performances in Scotland (2003), Italy (2007), and France and Monaco (2011). The CRSO has also performed at the Cherry Blossom Festival (2012), with the Philadelphia Orchestra (2009), at a Phillies Game (2011), in Baltimore's Symphony Hall (2005), and at the White House (2011, 2012, 2013).
