Elite String Ensemble (ESE)
The Elite String Ensemble consists of advanced string players of the Young Symphonic Ensemble and select Junior Symphonic Ensemble members by invitation of the Music Director. This small but highly advanced ensemble was established in 2004, and it is featured several times a year in community outreach performances and COS concerts.
Members of ESE have had opportunities to collaborate and perform with COS faculty musicians. The repertoire of the ESE consists of exciting works for string ensembles by such masters as Mendelssohn, Dvorak, Grieg and Bach.
Rehearsals: During the 2016-17 season, the Elite String Ensemble will meet on Saturdays from 2:00 to 3:00 PM.
