ORLA Orchestra

Welcome to the ORLA Orchestra Webpage!

This page is for both hConnect & Montessori orchestra students

I hope this page can provide some resources for you to become the best musician you can be. :)


The ORLA Beginning Orchestra meets Tuesday & Thursday from 1:00-1:50pm.

This class is for those who want to join our program and learn an orchestral string instrument (violin, viola, cello).  No experience necessary!

The ORLA Advanced Orchestra meets Tuesday & Thursday from 2:00-2:50pm.

This class is for those who already have a year of experience on an orchestral string instrument (violin, viola, cello) and are ready for a more challenging curriculum. 

Best way to contact orchestra teacher Mr. Grostick is at: rgrostick@osd.wednet.edu or leave a message with ORLA school secretary: 360-596-7730.
