Welcome to the Falcon Orchestra

    Fort Settlement Falcon Orchestra


    Since the opening of Fort Settlement Middle School the FSMS Orchestra has gained a local and national reputation for excellence.  Every year, more students participate and earn medals of excellence in the UIL Solo and Ensemble Contests.  Our Chamber Varsity Orchestra has consistently received UIL Sweepstakes Trophies at UIL Concert and Sight Reading Contests.  Our Non-Varsity Orchestras are frequently complimented and praised by judges for sound like a "varsity level performing ensemble."

    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.

    This orchestra has a place for everyone! We look forward to working with you!
