Orchestra Program Information

Members of the NFMHS Orchestra program are among the most talented young musicians in Lee County. 

In maintaining a high standard of excellence, students are treated as young professionals and held to an elevated level of achievement. Opportunities for student growth include masterclasses, workshops, independent study, performance experience, concerts, educational trips in and out of state, sectionals, class discussions, studio rehearsals, and research. 

We believe in creating an experience that emphasizes expression, intellectual curiosity, individual responsibility, maturity, and respect for others, aiding in students' development to reach their highest potential both in and beyond high school.
