Mrs. Boldon - GPHS Orchestras
You've reached the webpage for the Grants Pass High School Orchestra. This page is designed as a resource for both students and visitors, as it includes not only classroom information, but information about upcoming concerts and events as well.
The GPHS Orchestras include over 80 string students and perform as two ensembles: Chamber Orchestra (auditioned) and Concert Orchestra. Several students from both orchestras are additionally involved in the GPHS Symphony as well as other extra curricular musical opportunities.
