Orchestra Performance Groups

Kentwood Public Schools introduces students to formal instrumental music groups beginning in the 6th grade.  Each of Kentwood's three middle schools offer orchestra programs in grades six, seven and eight.

In addition to the traditional orchestra experience, beginning in the seventh grade, students are invited to try out for the middle school ABC (Anything But Classical) Orchestra ensembles.  These groups practice and play in addition to their traditional orchestra class activities. 

After leaving middle school, our orchestra music students have opportunities to perform in numerous groups as they progress in their high school years.  Those groups are:

  • Symphony Orchestra
  • Concert Orchestra
  • Philharmonic Orchestra
  • Advanced Strings
