Launched in 1995, the DePaul String Orchestra Program is open to
students of violin, viola, cello and bass, ages seven years and up.
Emphasizing high quality performances and the development of ensemble
techniques, the orchestra program complements the private lesson
experience and acquaints students with a wide range of repertoire for
string orchestra. Weekly rehearsals culminate in performances at the end
of each quarter.
For beginning students with at least two years of study, this small
group is an ideal first ensemble experience. Rehearsals concentrate on
basic ensemble playing, orchestral conduct, and the development of
strong reading and listening skills.
For intermediate and advanced players, the Beethoven Ensemble performs
quality string literature from a variety of eras and styles. Emphasis is
placed on refining ensemble techniques and developing a student’s
musicality through orchestral performance.
