Matoaca has four separate performing groups: Beginning, Intermediate, Advance and the Pops Orchestra The Beginning level is for students just starting out on their instruments. The Intermediate and Advance levels are for those students who are continuing their orchestral studies.
Every year, the Orchestra is growing and strengthening. Orchestras under the direction of Ms. Jilcott continually receive Superior ratings at the District III Orchestra Festival. Many of Ms. Jilcott’s students also participate in All County and Regional events, as well as perform in outside organizations, such as the Richmond Symphony Youth Orchestras. Ms. Jilcott’s orchestra students continue to perform and excel In high school. Many former students continue their study of music in college and beyond.
