The Youth Orchestra is open to all Melrose students who have been playing a string instrument for at least one year. The Youth Orchestra provides an exciting opportunity for students to learn to play their instruments with others and experience the music of a large ensemble. The Youth Orchestra rehearses from 2:45 – 4:00 in MVMMS Orchestra Room (E108) every Tuesday that school is in session, starting November 14th. If your child would like to participate, but doesn’t have a ride, please contact Mr. Miller to connect with other families from your school who may be able to help with carpooling. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mr. Miller at [email protected]
This year is an exciting year, as the Youth Orchestra will be continuing the Composer in Residence Project. Students will have the opportunity to work with and learn from a local composer, and rehearse/perform a brand new piece of music written especially for them, based on student submissions from last year! Stay tuned for more details.
