String Orchestra

String Orchestra is open to all string players (violin, viola, cello, upright bass) who are proficient on their instrument with at least 2 years experience. Students will study and perform a wide range of music literature. The important fundamentals of tone production, ensemble playing, musical interpretation and style, rhythm studies, scale and chord studies, and basic musicianship are all important elements of the String Orchestra curriculum.  Full Orchestra (strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion) meets on Thursday evenings starting in October.  Students are required to attend all evening Thursday rehearsals, performances and dress rehearsals.  Students enrolled in this course are eligible to audition for Southeastern Districts and SEMSBA.
