Music for a lifetime: Educating musicians to create a better world

Preparatory Orchestra

Beginning string ensemble

The Preparatory Orchestra was formed in January, 2001 and provides a beginning orchestral experience for string players of new ability. The primary emphasis of this ensemble is to teach beginning ensemble skills, orchestra rehearsal etiquette, and to help facilitate note-reading skills. Typical students are participants in fourth through sixth grade string programs who desire additional challenges and enrichment. This orchestra begins rehearsals in November.
