Hana Morford, Conductor

Emphasizing the fundamentals of large ensemble playing, the String Ensemble is an ideal first orchestral experience for late elementary through intermediate students of violin, viola, cello, and double bass in elementary and middle school or up to age 14. Rehearsals will focus on the mastery of string orchestra techniques, listening, following, leadership, rhythm, and blend of sound. The intense preparation of repertoire culminates in the performance of a Fall and Spring concert.

New and continuing students must audition for acceptance and placement in the orchestra. Auditions are open to all interested students but priority will be given to those in individual instruction at the Preparatory. Only students in individual instruction at the Preparatory are eligible to participate in Preparatory recitals or competitions, including the String Ensemble Competition.
