The program consists of four orchestras – Concert Orchestra, Classic Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra, and the Harrison Symphony Orchestra. Furthermore, the program maintains a very active chamber music program. Students in the Harrison Orchestra program are consistent members in the Georgia All-State Orchestra, Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra, Georgia Youth Symphony Orchestra, Metropolitan Youth Symphony Orchestra, and Georgia’s Governor’s Honors Program. Additionally, through the generous support of the Harrison Orchestra Boosters, our students have the opportunity to work with a faculty of outstanding professional musicians.
In Cobb County, students begin orchestra in the sixth grade. Most students attending Harrison High School come from Durham Middle School (Jennifer Aikey, director), Lost Mountain Middle School (Linda Stephens, director), or McClure Middle School (Clare Mansell, director.)
