         The orchestra program at Wheeler has grown from 30 members to over 180 members in the past few years. The orchestra program is made of 3 orchestras - Philharmonia, Sinfonia, and Chamber. 

          Membership in each of the orchestras is based on audition. In the last few years, the orchestras have performed at the “North American Music Festival” in Virginia Beach, as well as “Music USA Festivals” in Orlando, winning excellent ratings at these festivals. In 2009, the orchestra traveled to Chicago. In the spring of 2011 and 2014, the

orchestra traveled to New York and participate in an educational masterclass with members of the New York Philharmonic. As a part of the GMEA Large Group Performance Evaluation, the orchestras received ratings of superior in both concert and sightreading.
