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, 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.
