In order to maintain and efficient orchestra, allow for more student agency, and encourage a collaborative atmosphere within the rehearsal room, the orchestra elects board members.  Board members are voices that help to represent all members in the orchestra. Through the board, it is the hope that student voice will be amplified and help to create and define what the orchestra is. You are all stakeholders. This is your voice! Holding one of these positions will not affect a students grade, and should be considered a service to the orchestra program.
