Welcome to the 2019-20 School Year!


This class is part of the Richmond County Orchestra program, also referred to as the RCO. The RCO has been an active part of the Richmond County Fine Arts curriculum since the 1970's, providing music education to thousands of students throughout the county.


We have six orchestras, spanning from 4th to 12th grades. The middle school level consists of two orchestras: Prelude (intermediate level) and Filarmonico (advanced). This year, auditions will be held on the night of Monday, September 30th. They will take place at the RCO headquarters in the Tubman Education Center, on Walton Way. Please refer to your child's audition sheet for more details or feel free to contact your child's orchestra teacher. 

Orchestra classes at Murphey will begin this August, during the week of the 26th. Students wishing to continue orchestra this year will need to be sure to be prepared with supplies and materials, such as instrument, bow, cleaning cloths, and rosin! A full list of supplies will be provided on the syllabus.


Please check back here regularly for any announcements, and also be sure to check your child's orchestra folder as all information will be sent home as well.

Looking forward to a great year! Please contact me at any time!

Mr. Connolly
