Our String Ensemble class will begin Saturday, November 12, 2022 from 12 PM – 12:45 PM upstairs at the Queen Ka’ahumanu Center.
The ensemble is open to students who currently play the violin, viola, cello or bass and have between 1 to 3 years of playing experience, (either privately or in a group) and are interested in preparing themselves to join the Philharmonic Orchestra, or any other orchestra at the next level and beyond this class. Students will continue and expand their current experience with note-reading working toward fluency, be introduced to music notation and string techniques used in orchestral music, and grow in their understanding of playing with others by listening and expressing themselves musically. Most of all, they will make new friends and have fun while learning and playing their instruments!
