Arroyo High School Knights Orchestra
The history of the Arroyo String Orchestra can be traced back to 1957 begins with a 6
person String Ensemble.  It was once one of the main Arroyo High School Knights Band
ensembles in the late 65's.  Composed of string instruments plus piano, the Arroyo String
Orchestra performs at both the Winter and Spring concerts and may perform at local
Southern California School Band and Orchestra festivals.  Entry level students in the
String Orchestra and Advanced students in the Chamber Orchestra perform music
composed specifically for string orchestra.  The orchestra may accompany the wind
instruments and percussion on certain compositions, at which time it becomes a
Symphony Orchestra.
