The orchestras of Frank W. Cox High School strive to represent the utmost dedication to musical excellence in the school, district, state, and country. The students in our ensembles are exposed to a wide array of musical repertoire and performances throughout the concert season. Students are provided with many leadership, social, and team building opportunities throughout the year that create a strong musical environment. Our students and director are supported by an organization of parents and volunteers, known as the Cox Orchestra Association (COA), dedicated to the success and growth of the orchestra program.
For advanced students, the Chamber Orchestra is a continuation of orchestral studies at the advanced to artist level. We perform advanced to professional orchestral repertoire at the VBODA Levels of IV-VI. Available for students in grades 9-12 by audition only. Students in this orchestra are strongly encouraged to take private lessons to keep up with the level of music we study in this ensemble.
For students with three (3) or more years of experience, the Concert Orchestra is a continuation of orchestral studies from middle school. We perform intermediate orchestral repertoire at the VBODA Levels of III-V. Available for students in grades 9-12.
