Welcome to Mitchell Orchestra! At Mitchell High School, we pride ourselves on teaching the whole child for their development and orchestra is a key piece to this. Science has shown that musical training can change brain structure and function for the better. It can also improve long-term memory and lead to better brain development for those who start at a young age (https://www.inc.com/john-rampton/the-benefits-of-playing-music-help-your-brain-more.html).
Orchestra students at Mitchell perform a variety of pieces ranging from classical to modern. Mr. Pat Abbott is our director and he engages with our students in a variety of ways to develop their musical skills from beginner to advanced. Mitchell High School also has a state of the art auditorium to capture the acoustics of our performances and provide a quality sound for our audiences.
We would love to have your student join our program and show off their skills!
