Fort Settlement Falcon Orchestra
This orchestra has a place for everyone! Whether you have never played or have been playing for a while, we look forward to working with you!
Our success, in great part, is due to the hard work, dedication, persistence, teamwork, and training of our students. It is our goal to develop the complete student through the knowledge of and participation in the performing arts in a learning environment that fosters dependability, responsibility, honesty, cooperation, healthy competitiveness, self-discipline, a desire for learning and an appreciation for the Fine Arts, so that students can become assets to and productive citizens of society.
