Orchestra

The orchestra program is comprised of four string orchestras and symphony orchestra with 170 students participating, grades 7-12. Under the expert guidance of founding director Mrs. Heidi Franklin, the string ensembles of Buchanan and Alta Sierra have consistently received superior ratings at festival throughout the history of the program. After Mrs. Franklin's retirement in 2017, John Lack assumed leadership of the program with plans to continue the Buchanan Educational Center Orchestra Program's strong tradition of excellence.
