Welcome to 2021-2022

Dear Students and Parents,

              Welcome to the new school year. My name is Toru Tagawa, and this is my 13th year as the Orchestra Director at Canyon del Oro High School. I am looking forward to working with all of you and making great music. At CDO, we have two orchestras, the Concert Orchestra and the Symphonic Orchestra. The Concert Orchestra is open to intermediate level students, and the Symphonic Orchestra is only open to advanced students and audition is required.

In both orchestras, we will cover a variety of literature from J.S. Bach to full orchestra music. We will be learning about composers, scales, key signatures in addition to playing your instrument. 

Please read this handbook carefully and sign the online contract by August 17, 2021. Link is at Orchestra Handbook 2021-2022 Make sure to put your T-shirt size, you will receive one Orchestra T-shirt. We will make T-shirts after we are able to meet in person. 

Symphonic Orchestra meets in the 2nd Period.

Concert Orchestra meets in the 3rd Period. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
