String Ensembles for 2012

posted 30 Nov 2011, 17:16 by Barry Dale, SCYO
Audition results for all groups will be posted on this website very soon.
After careful consideration of the abilities and ages of those who auditioned,  we will be inviting string players to be a part of the following ensembles:

Youth Symphony Orchestra - Rehearsing 4:45pm - 6 45pm
In response to feedback from students and parents, we will only require advanced string players from the Youth Symphony Orchestra to stay longer when there are special tutorials scheduled. This will occur once or twice a term.

Advanced Strings - Symphony Strings - Rehearsing 7:00-8:15pm
We will be offering an optional Advanced String Orchestra for those who are able to commit to the regular extra rehearsal time. Please indicate when you accept your position for Youth Symphony if you are interested in being in the Advanced String Orchestra.

Intermediate Strings - Sinfonia Strings - Rehearsing 4:45pm - 6:30pm
Many of our String Orchestra members from 2011 will be invited to step up to this group. Members of this group will be incorporated into the 2nd/3rd violins and cellos/bass sections of the Youth Symphony Orchestra for the first 45 minutes of practise 4:45 - 5:30, and then rehearse their own repertoire from 5:30 to 6:30.

Junior Strings - Amati Strings - 4:30pm - 5 30pm
Our youngest string orchestra is made up of primary-school-aged students. The highlight of our year will be the tour to Toowoomba in June 2 /3 (tentative date).
