Chicago Youth Orchestra

Chicago's string ensemble for northside young artists.

The string ensemble is for the advancing intermediate string player ready to begin an ensemble experience. Being a member of the ensemble will enhance note recognition and sight reading, provide experience with conductors and learning to be a part of an ensemble rather than a soloist, all while learning new and exciting repertoire. There is space for Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass and Harp in the ensemble. 

Weekly rehearsals are Thursday afternoons from 4:30 to 5:30

Dates: January 17th - May 2nd. 

Performance date May 4th at 6:30 pm
