Pit Orchestra Photo 3The Samohi Pit Orchestra is under the direction of Mr. Terry Sakow. Band students can sign up for Pit Orchestra starting in November of each year; there is no audition required.

Rehearsals for the spring musical typically begin in late November or early December and are held once a week on Fridays after school. The two weeks before opening day are tech weeks, and rehearsals occur every weekday after school. The spring musical usually runs over two weekends in March or April, and the Pit Orchestra performs on a rotating basis. 

See photos from last year’s performance during “Side Show” here.
