The Beckman High School Orchestra has experienced much success in its short history and is the largest high school orchestra program in the Tustin Unified School District (120 students) with three levels of orchestra. Through its performances of standard orchestral literature and the performances of new music by student and local composers, as well as the number and quality of performances in the community, the orchestra is making its presence felt in the artistic communities of Tustin and Irvine.

The Royal Tonga Police Band’s origin goes back to almost a hundred years ago. It started during the 1900’s comprised of students from the only Government School at the time.

In 1968, the band became the full official Tonga Police Brass Band, completely integrated within the Police Force.
