The Arcadia High School Orchestral Music program has four performing orchestras led by director Ms. Pin Chen and assistant director Ms. Connie Tu.
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.
