The Austin High School Orchestra Council is comprised of elected officers from the Chamber and Philharmonic Orchestras.
A representative is also elected from the incoming freshman class in an effort to ensure that all grade levels are involved in orchestra decisions.
These students are responsible for orchestra operations, fundraising activities, vertical team concerts, recruiting tours, trip planning and preparation, and the orchestra banquet. The Council is an active and integral part of the orchestras’ communications to its members and an invaluable organizational tool for the Orchestra Director. Elections of officers are held each spring semester. The Orchestra Council meets one time per week.
