Summer String Festival

Want to keep your playing shape this summer? Our weekly workshop will help!  It’s designed for all school-aged bowed string players with at least one year of experience.  

We’ll combine playing in a big group for ensemble skills, and smaller groups for attention to technique and getting musical details in shape. Joining this group will help you get more comfortable with playing different parts in a group, reading music, and making new friends! 

Musical selections will be made based on what you can manage and what we think would be fun to play!  We will also consult with your school orchestra teachers so that we can help you be ready for your school groups in the fall.
