River Crest Elementary orchestra students.

Hello 3rd Grade Families!

Our spring Orchestra Sign Up night is Tuesday, April 4th at the Hudson High School cafeteria. All 3rd grade students are invited to attend! This year we will be having two meetings to make the registration process more convenient. Please attend the meeting scheduled for your student’s school:

If you are unable to attend your assigned school due to a scheduling conflict, feel free to come to the other time slot.

The Orchestra Sign Up night will start with a brief informational meeting and a question and answer session. Please bring your child with you to the meeting!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What instrument can my child play? Students can play violin, viola, cello or bass. Elementary orchestra teachers will be visiting you child’s classroom to demonstrate the differences between these awesome string instruments!
  • When are lessons? Lessons will begin in August of next school year. Students will need to bring their instruments to school on one day per week. They have a large group lesson before school at 8:00 AM and a small group lesson during the school day.
  • How much does it cost? The rental costs vary by instrument. An instrument rental representative will be at the meeting to explain how the rental program works. The initial four-month rental costs are $45 for violin and viola, $65 for cello, and $95 for bass.

Following the meeting, we will help you pick the right size instrument for your child and you will have an opportunity to set up an instrument rental.
