Camellia Juniors and Cadets Orchestras

The Camellia Symphony Orchestra has two student orchestras: Cadets is the beginner/intermediate level orchestra, and the Juniors Orchestra is the intermediate/advanced level. Our goal is to provide the students with an orchestra experience outside of their school that will challenge and advance their music-making skills, while also being fun and rewarding.
