GOTAK is the Irish Music group at Grand Haven High School. GOTAK is an extracurricular string ensemble that began in 2005 with a handful of orchestra students interested in exploring string music outside of the classical realm. GOTAK has grown significantly since then, and always excites the audience with their love of “fiddling” and sounds of Blue Grass, Irish and Celtic Folk Music, Jazz and Rock. GOTAK performs at the orchestra concerts held throughout the school year (fall, December, spring), as well as occasional community events. They are the proud hosts of Grand Haven's annual Irish Fest.
