String Chamber Orchestra

Open to advanced pre-college string players. SCO is the highest level string orchestra for the Prep program. Students placed in SCO generally play with a high level of musicality and technical mastery, and are comfortable playing complete concertos. While orchestra assignments are made by level, not age, most members of SCO are in grades 9-12.

Rehearsals: Saturday, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM in Brown Hall
