The Arcadia High School Orchestral Music program has four performing orchestras led by director Ms. Pin Chen and assistant director Mrs. Amanda Svetich.
The four orchestras give many different performances throughout the school year. Aside from concerts, the orchestras also take part in various competitions and festivals, in addition to the annual Benefit Dinner. Members of the orchestras also have the opportunity to perform in small chamber groups and quartets in various fundraisers and other events.

The Arcadia High School Orchestras are divided into these four string orchestras for the 2019-20 school year: Freshman Orchestra, String Orchestra, Concert Orchestra and Symphony Orchestra. 
Freshman Orchestra (Orchestra 1) is comprised of all 9th grade orchestra students. 

String Orchestra (Orchestra 2.1) is an open ensemble for grades 10-12.
Concert Orchestra (Orchestra 2.2) is an intermediate/advanced ensemble for grades 10-12 by teacher recommendation.

Symphony Orchestra (Orchestra 3) is a 10th-12th grade auditioned ensemble. Students in this orchestra are advanced musicians who have strong proficiency skills and a good academic record. Symphony Orchestra string players combine with selected band and percussion students for select pieces.

**The program structure will change starting the 2020-21 school year. More information will be posted on the orchestra website.
