PYSO String Orchestra

The String Orchestra is an all-strings ensemble that provides intermediate to advanced violin, viola, cello, and string bass students a unique musical opportunity to experience vital musical growth, perform orchestral arrangements, and develop ensemble playing and technical skills. Musicians are typically in grades 6-9.

The String Orchestra provides a strong foundation for future orchestral playing experiences.

For specific pieces, the PYSO Wind Ensemble and String Orchestra will combine for rehearsal and

performances, giving musicians the opportunity to perform within a full symphony setting. Students participating in String Orchestra have ensemble experience, musical style and expression, along with experience in vibrato and shifting.

The String Orchestra rehearses on TBA,  Pasadena High School unless otherwise noted.
