Tuesdays, 4:15 to 5:45pm
In the Chamber Orchestra, students learn to follow a conductor and engage with a variety of high quality repertoire. While there is some range of levels in the group, students are expected to be comfortable with shifting and vibrato before auditioning. If there is enough demand, the group will be divided into two orchestras. The Chamber Orchestra helps students develop the interpersonal and collaborative skills required for the more advanced Youth Chamber Music experience.
Students are required to study privately with a teacher of their choice. Audition required.
