Caprock High School Orchestra

The Caprock High School Orchestra program is dedicated to the continued development of musical knowledge and technical skills for every string performer.  It is our goal to help each student develop a passion for music and achieve their highest musical ability through solo and group practice.

The Caprock Orchestra has consistently won awards at various competitions throughout the state including Best in Class at the Greater Southwest Music Festival and the Dallas Showcase of Music.  Our performing ensembles continue to earn sweepstakes ratings at UIL contests and several of our students have represented Caprock at the All-Region Orchestra contest.  Many of our music scholars are also members of the Amarillo Youth Symphony Orchestra.
