The Orchestra program at DeWitt Perry Middle School is a cornerstone of the exceptional Fine Arts programs offered within the schools of CFB. Perry is known to be a school of excellence and the Orchestra program holds a high standard of excellence. As directors, our mission is to help your student embark on a musical journey that starts a seven year program of instruction that starts in middle school and continues in high school. Through the curriculum taught, we hope that your student will gain a better understanding and appreciation of music which will help add to their knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for success in their academic careers. Orchestra students will learn personal responsibility through practice and will learn to respect each other and themselves. Orchestra students learn the value of teamwork as well as healthy competition. The best orchestra is the one that supports the endeavors of its own members. Orchestra students also learn to have fun in a safe environment.
