The Kinder Orchestra introduces young beginning strings students to orchestral playing. In this relatively small group, they learn important fundamentals of playing with others in an ensemble setting while still receiving close personal guidance.
The Kinder Orchestra rehearses and performs short, enjoyable arrangements for young string players. There are no strict age requirements, although members are generally under the age of 12.
Applicants must have had private individual instruction for at least one year, but prior orchestral or ensemble experience is not necessary. The Kinder Orchestra is featured twice a year in the annual Winter and Spring Concerts.
Rehearsals: During the 2016-17 school year, this ensemble will meet on Saturdays from 2:00 to 3:30 PM.
