The Westglades Orchestra Program consists of two separate performing groups: Beginning Orchestra and Advanced Orchestra. Our Beginning Orchestra is comprised of all the beginning (first time) students, while Advanced Orchestra membership is earned by any 7th and 8th graders continuing in the orchestra. Ms. Todd teaches the Beginning Orchestra class, while Mr. Rabin teaches the Advanced Orchestra class. Membership is given to all those interested but is only maintained by good behavior and sincere effort. It is the hope that students in Westglades Orchestra continue on to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Orchestra, and learn to be life-long musicians, no matter what career path they may choose after high school.
