Chamber Strings

This is an audition only group where students will continue to develop the fundamental elements for playing a traditional string orchestra instrument (violin, viola, cello, bass) in an ensemble setting. Special attention is given to developing more fluid sight-reading reading and aural skills, disciplinary literacy, proper posture, tone and intonation. Students at this level will read and perform music at the grade 4+ level. In addition to standard ensemble repertoire all HS orchestra majors will learn solo repertoire and perform a jury at the end of each semester consisting of Scales, solo and excerpt materials.
