A note about WEATHER
Even in inclement weather, the show must go on! Unless,
of course, the District cancels school or evening activities.

Welcome to the home of the Chatfield Articulation Area Elementary String         Orchestras!           

This page is for the String Orchestras of Bradford Intermediate, Coronado, Mortensen, Shaffer, Stony Creek, and Ute Meadows.
These are the six schools that feed into Deer Creek Middle School, Falcon Bluffs Middle School and Chatfield Senior High School.

This is the place where the families of Elementary String Students can find important announcements, information on weekly rehearsal schedules, event dates, homework assignments, and important documents.


The book used is Essential Elements for Strings. The Beginning class uses Book 1, and the Advanced class uses also uses Book 1 until January or such time as individual students progress on their own into Book 2.  These can be purchased at any of the music stores listed on this website. It is important that you choose the book that goes with your instrument.  (e.g. - if you are playing viola, you can NOT use a violin book)
Look here to keep current with events on the Chatfield Area Orchestra Calendar!
