Prelude Orchestra

Prelude Orchestra is open to young string players looking for their first experience in an ensemble setting.  Prelude Orchestra is geared towards students in grades 3-5 who have experience on their instrument, but not in orchestra.  Students have an average of 1 to 3 years playing experience, and will develop vital ensemble skills that foster individual growth, while learning how to listen and watch, play in a group setting, and understand orchestral vocabulary.

Applicants should be of sufficient behavioral and emotional maturity to participate in a weekly 45-minute rehearsal held on Sunday afternoons.

Participation in Prelude Orchestra is not intended to replace private music lessons, and placement in the orchestra is by audition.
