String Orchestra is a yearlong course devoted to the study of music written and arranged for standard orchestral string instruments (violin, viola, cello, and string bass). Students of varying levels of ability and experience are invited to participate, but are expected to have a firm grasp of basic playing fundamentals and the technical demands of their instrument, as well as the facility to read standard music notation with at least moderate fluency. Students will study musical repertoire representing various styles, historical periods, and traditions, and they will also work in chamber music ensembles. Attendance at all concert performances is mandatory.
