Winter Park High School Orchestra

Welcome to the Winter Park High School Orchestra website. The Winter Park High School Orchestra prides itself on a long-standing tradition of excellence in music education.

The program consists of four orchestras: Concert Orchestra, which is open to all 9th grade students, Symphonic Orchestra, which is open to all 10-12th grade students, Winter Park Philharmonic (often referred to as "Park Phil"), which is available to 9-12th grade students by audition, and Lyric Strings, which is available to 10-12th grade students by audition.

For years, this program has been a model for high school orchestra programs in the State of Florida and throughout the country. In fact, the entire Music Department at Winter Park High School was recognized as a 2004-2007 "Music Demonstration School" by the Florida Department of Education.

Winter Park Orchestras have consistently earned "Excellent" and "Superior" ratings at District and State Music Performance Assessments. In 2018, the Winter Park Philharmonic was awarded all 'Superior' ratings at District MPA
