Youth Orchestra

In order to qualify for youth orchestra, students are generally nearing the end of Suzuki Book 1, are able to read and recognize most notes on the staff, and have a strong tone. 

Youth Orchestra meets weekly, on Fridays 2:30-4:00.  We tackle music from a variety of genres.  Examples include Brahms' "Hungarian Dance," an orchestra arrangement of the folk tune "Cindy," and the theme to the movie "James Bond."  We directly teach orchestra skills, such as tracking the music, counting measures, following tempo changes. 

We seek community venues to perform, such as the North Bend Block party, where we have performed each summer since June 2009.
