This concert will be a tour of Hollywood, as the orchestra offers music from James Bond and Harry Potter movies, “Titanic,” “Forrest Gump” and “Psycho.”
Desserts and coffee will be available for purchase during intermission.
This weekend, the Roughrider Orchestra will perform in the Mercer Island Orchestra Festival, the first of several regional events on the musicians' calendar this season.
The school's concert season kicked off Monday with a choir performance.
Concerts will be offered nearly every month through June.
Port Angeles High's music program has five bands, three orchestras and four choirs.
This year, the band program is raising funds for an April trip to Washington, D.C., to perform on the National Mall and other venues in the nation's capital.
The orchestra traveled to New York City in April to play Carnegie Hall.
The school choirs plan for a New York City visit in 2015.
On Dec. 17, the Holiday Program — which features performances by all Port Angeles High bands, orchestras and choirs, will be broadcast live on KONP radio — and will be video-webcast live by PATV, the district's student-run television station.
