Fairview High School


Fairview High School Classic Knights Orchestra

The Classic Knights Orchestra is a non-audition group of students in grades nine through twelve. Emphasis is placed on exploring different periods of string orchestra literature. Goals include excellence in performance, creating beauty through solid technique, ear training, an understanding of style, and bringing string music to the community as a long-term commitment.

Students may also audition for the Classic Knights Chamber Orchestra. This select group places a higher demand upon students, who are exposed to literature normally reserved for college and professional musicians. Chamber students are expected to already be at a high level of playing and be able to learn the music outside of class.

The Classic Knights Orchestra class is a microcosm of the Fairview High School student body that includes student leaders, academic leaders, and student athletes. Individuals have distinguished themselves through selection to all-state groups, college scholarships, and concerto competitions. The Classic Knights are also well traveled, having given performances in Austria, Belgium, England, France, Holland, and Italy. The Fairview Classic Knights have been selected nine times to represent Boulder Valley at the state music teachers’ convention at the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs. They perform four major concerts per year as a large ensemble, and smaller chamber groups perform for many other functions, as well. Often, they will collaborate with the choir and band students to perform a rich and varied body of literature.
