Advanced Orchestra I – Full Year Course

Prerequisite:  Audition Required or Teacher Recommendation

Advanced strings rehearses every other day and performs in scheduled concerts and other performances as announced. 


During rehearsals, the emphasis is on ensemble skills, including tone quality, intonation, balance, rhythmic precision, articulation, emotional expression, and musical interpretation.


In order to further develop these skills on an individual basis, students are strongly encouraged to study with a private teacher outside of the school day. Select members of Blue Devil Strings have the opportunity to audition for County and District Orchestra Festivals, and may be chosen to play in the pit orchestra for the Spring Musical. Participation in concert performances outside of regular class hours is required.
