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 Tuesday nights from 5:00pm-6:30pm at Pasadena High School unless otherwise noted.
