Richmond High School - First
High School Orchestra
A Landmark of American Music
Birthplace of the first high school orchestra in the public schools of the United States organized by Will Earhart in 1900.
"The group was
organized originally as a mandolin, violin, and guitar section
of a boy's glee club, but soon outgrew this subordinate function
to become a genuine orchestra of small size."
Presented by the
National Music Council, Richmond Senior High School Orchestra
