While there are many different types of programs for JRHS students to take advantage of in the Performing Arts Department, they all share a single goal. Whether they are marching on the football field with the band, building sets for the latest play, singing and dancing with a show choir, or discovering the intricacies of a Mozart string quartet, our students are learning first-hand what it means to express their own creativity, and how that creativity blossoms when shared with others. The JRHS Performing Arts Department offers award-winning programs in band, chorus, guitar, orchestra, and theatre, with a wide variety of courses available within each program–wherever the performance urge may lie, JRHS has something to satisfy it.


The Orchestra is directed by Mr. Justin Turpin, Department Chair
