Junior Repertory Orchestra


Adam Grossman, Director

Junior Repertory Orchestra (JRO) is open to intermediate pre-college string players, woodwinds, and brass. JRO is the entry level full-orchestra ensemble for NEC Prep. To be placed in JRO, students generally play with fluidity, have a developed vibrato, and are comfortable playing three-octave scales and arpeggios. While orchestral assignments are made by level, not age, most members of JRO are in grades 7-10.

Rehearsals: Saturday, 1:00-2:30 PM



2021-22 Highlights include:

Copland: Down a Country Lane

Rossini: Il Signor Bruschino Overture


2020-21 Highlights included:

2019-20 Highlights included:

Beethoven: excerpts from The Creatures of Prometheus
