Preparatory Division Orchestras Concert Entertains

Thank you to all performers and parents who participated in the May 2 concert of the Youth String Camerata! You can still order recordings of the concert.


The Youth String Camerata, led by conductor Marcia Ferritto, provides an opportunity for advanced students to experience the excitement and challenge of rehearsing and performing music in the intimate setting of a chamber ensemble. The group is limited in size for this purpose.

The students are introduced to the study and performance of works of varying styles. Each piece of music draws on the entire spectrum of skill of the individual player and of the group as a whole.
