About the Orchestras
Normal West High School has three auditioned curricular orchestras that meet daily: Concert Orchestra, Sinfonia Orchestra, and Chamber Orchestra. These ensembles have an active performance schedule including the annual Halloween Hauntcert, the Unit 5 Music Parents Musical Extravaganza (formerly with spaghetti), winter concerts, the Unit Orchestra concert, and spring concerts. Students also actively participate in madrigal strings, musical pit orchestra, the ILMEA District and All-State Auditions and Festivals, and IHSA Solo and Ensemble Contest. All three groups perform a diverse repertoire of musical selections and participate in a variety of concerts and festivals.
