Pit Orchestra

Join your fellow instrumentalists and Campo's singers to bring a Broadway musical to life!

     Campolindo is unique in that its musical productions for the choral department are supplemented by a live pit orchestra comprised of Campolindo student instrumentalists. Pit musicians play real, unabridged theatre scores in their original orchestrations, conducted by choral director Mark Roberts. Rehearsals run beginning the week after returning from winter break on a once-a-week basis throughout January and February. Beginning in late February, rehearsals will run several times a week in evenings for longer sessions with the cast, culminating in two full dress rehearsals in the final week before opening night. Instrumentalists interested in joining the pit should be sure they can attend most, if not all, rehearsals, honor the commitment and be flexible in rearranging other conflicts as showtime arrives, be prepared for the endurance of rehearsals and shows, and be willing to play the most challenging repertoire they’ve played their musical careers.

Titanic, The Phantom of the Opera

The pit has been the most fun ensemble I’ve ever played with. It’s certainly a challenge but definitely one that I look forward to every year. I’ve gotten to know so many other kids in choir through it, and am proud to walk around the school on opening night with my production shirt on with all of them.
