Junior Orchestra

2020-21 Season and Registration Update:
Next season may look different than in the past to ensure everyone’s safety during the COVID-19 pandemic.Our program options will be based on state and local guidelines, and availability of school district facilities. Rest assured that we will continue to provide a unique and valuable musical experience for all orchestra members, using a combination of in-person ensembles whenever possible, and virtual music classes and sectionals. We will keep you informed as new information emerges, and send an announcement as soon as it is time to register.

Junior Orchestra (JO) rehearsals are held Monday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 pm in the North Eugene High band room. The program fee for JO is $430 for the year, and there are several payment options, as well as scholarships available (described on registration). The JO season includes up to 30 rehearsals, sectional coaching, several education and outreach concerts, and two formal concerts – with Little Symphony in December, and JO’s final season concert in May.

Reporting Absences: Your registrar is Janna Hudson – all absences and tardies must be reported by a parent to: joregistrar@esyorchestras.org or call 541-501-7279.

Christopher Noel  is the conductor of ESYO’s Junior Orchestra. Chris is an enthusiastic and passionate conductor and musician, and it shines through as he works with the musicians of the orchestra. His love for music, and for sharing it with young people, is easily seen as he rehearses with humor and cheer – all the while enabling students to be their best. He chooses a variety of music to both challenge and delight!
