MYS Hillsboro String Ensembles
Students in these string-only ensemble should have at least one year of experience on their instruments. Basic music reading skills are required, and students should be familiar with keys at least up to two sharps. Musicians will work with their conductor in a combination of ensemble playing and technique workshops to improve their overall musicianship. Students need only one year of experience on an instrument to audition and may play in as many ensembles for which they qualify at no extra cost. Following an audition, students are placed in the most advanced ensemble the conductors feel will be a good fit, where students are challenged musically but can succeed and have fun. Please note that MYS owns some instruments that may be available for loan, but serious students should consider purchasing their own.
