The CFCArts Young Artists Orchestra (YAO) is open to all instrumentalists in Grades 6-12 with one year minimum of experience, and at the directors’ discretion for Grades 3-5, and each rehearsal is a fun, uplifting experience where the students play challenging music from both classical and popular/modern repertoire. The YAO was created to give young instrumentalists from all backgrounds and experience levels a safe and encouraging environment to create music while getting to know other young performers from the community.
The Elementary String Ensemble is open to students in Grades 1-5, or Grade 6 if students have less than one year of experience. The Elementary String Ensemble allows students to explore early string technique, and join the Young Artists Orchestra for selected pieces in the end-of-semester concert. Rehearsal books and CDs are included in tuition.
The Young Artists Orchestra and Elementary String Ensemble rehearse on a Spring and Fall semester schedule with a concert at the culmination of each semester.
Registration for the YAO is open year-round, and new students may audition each week prior to the rehearsal by appointment.
