Symphony Orchestra Opportunities
Reagan High School Symphony Orchestra
The Reagan High School Symphony Orchestra consists of select members of the band program (based on their western region orchestra and honor band auditions), who are invited to join with our string students to form a full symphony orchestra.  The Symphony Orchestra performs in the Reagan HS Auditorium twice a year and typically also performs at a theme park music festival in the spring.  The Reagan HS Symphony Orchestra has earned superior ratings at the Carowinds Music Festival and Music in the Parks Festival, where they have been awarded the Most Outstanding Orchestra of the day.
