The Saucon Valley Pit Orchestra is a group of student musicians who perform the musical score for High School Theatre. Playing in a Pit Orchestra is widely different from playing in a band. It builds solo skills and sense of dynamics plus a strong grasp of intonation and blending. The Pit Orchestra is under the direction of Herb Payung and also includes professional musicians.
Rehearsals begin in January and continue until the last performance of the play. The orchestra rehearses twice/week and has an intense schedule during the week of the play.
