Junior Strings Skills Requirements

There is no audition required for entry to Junior Strings.

Junior Strings serves as YOCVA’s preparatory string orchestra. It develops beginning strings players and prepares them for future membership in the Evans Orchestra and Youth Symphony. This ensemble has rolling admissions throughout the year at the director’s discretion.

SKILL REQUIREMENTS:  Members of this group should be able to play in major and minor finger patterns, use a full bow with slurring abilities, and read music.  This usually translates to being at the beginning of Suzuki Book 2. Attendance at the first rehearsals in September is requested; commitment and participation fee payment is not required until October.
