The Senior Orchestra is one of the most active organizations
in school as it has represented Franklin in many of the civic
affairs of Long Beach. Franklin attracted the attention of
Southern California Music Officials by winning so many high
ratings for the soloists entered at Pasadena. Besides those
outside activities there was the splendid Spring Concert in
which Mrs. Whitnack so ably conducted the Senior Orchestra
to higher levels of musicianship and music appreciation.

In the minds of those who are closely associated with the
orchestras, there is a doubt whether or not the Junior Orchestra
receives due credit. The reason for such a doubt is easy to see
when we realize that although the Junior Orchestra makes
fewer appearances than the Senior Orchestra, it affords an
opportunity for the musicians to prepare themselves for Senior
Orchesetra. It gives them needed experience and confidence to
become efhcient in the advanced work in Senior Orchestra.
