The Wheeling High School Chamber Orchestra is the premiere string performing group at Wheeling High School. Each spring a small group of about 25 students are selected by audition for membership. The ensemble rehearses bi-weekly outside of the school day. Students in Chamber Orchestra perform advanced repertoire; therefore, a majority of the musicians take private lessons on their instruments. All students are encouraged to study privately, and scholarships are available for those in need. The Chamber Orchestra performs four concerts yearly.
