The music switches to orchestras at 7:30 p.m. on March 11 when the high school's orchestra will hold a free concert in the auditorium.

It will feature the Chamber Orchestra, which will perform this weekend at the Northwest Orchestra Festival in Gresham, Ore.

Port Angeles High will host the North Olympic Music Educators Orchestra Assessment beginning at 8 a.m. March 12.
