It takes an orchestra to play a symphony.


If you play string, woodwind, brass, or percussion instruments then you will find a chair in the orchestra. Orchestra is a performance-based course/group that plays from a unique repertoire. You’ll play for the entire School several times a year and hone your skills as a musician. If you want to take your musicianship to the next level, you can also try out for the Santa Barbara Youth Symphony, where several Cate students practice regularly.
