Webb Bridge Middle School opened in 1996. Previous orchestra directors were Sharon Anderson (1996-99) and Jennifer Batson (1999-2000). James Barket became Orchestra Director in the Fall of 2000. The orchestras perform three concerts each year at WBMS. They also participate regularly in the GMEA Large Group Performance Evaluation and at various community events in the Alpharetta area. Chamber groups from WBMS also participate in the GMEA Solo & Ensemble Festival. Since 1996, orchestras from WBMS have consistently received ratings of Superior and Excellent at GMEA LGPE, and many students from WBMS participate in the GMEA All-State Orchestra each year.
