Play symphonic repertoire in a community orchestra.
For advanced violin, viola, cello, and bass students ages 11 and up with a high level of commitment, APSE offers a chance to develop ensemble and solo skills at a high level.
Students 8 and up will learn to create dynamic contrasts, shape phrases, understand how different parts work together to create the whole piece, and how to build a group sound.
Students will learn how to play in a section, holding their own on a part that is rhythmically & melodically different than other parts of the ensemble.
Orchestra Explorers is for string students who are just starting to read music, designed as a supplement to their lesson note reading in a group setting.
