Welcome to String Ensemble and Orchestra 2020-2021

  

High School Instrumental Music

This class will meet 5 days per week (hybrid and remote). Attendance will be important, as before, in your high school days! Cohort H is Monday and Thursday in person, and Cohort T is Tuesday and Friday. Practice of the string ensemble music is expected for success and progress in the class. At least for the immediate future, Full Orchestra (strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion) will be a virtual ensemble experience with a start date to be determined. 

 

Middle School Instrumental Music

Strings will meet 5 days per week (hybrid and remote). Attendance is very important, as before, in RMS Morning Music! The class meeting time will be 7:45 to 8:10 a.m. Cohort H is Monday and Thursday in person, and Cohort T is Tuesday and Friday. Practice of the classroom music is expected for success and progress in the class. At least for the immediate future, Full Orchestra (strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion) will be a virtual ensemble experience with a start date to be determined.

 

Elementary Lessons, Grades 4 and 5 Strings

Currently plans are being made for 30-minute zoom lessons to occur, encouraging a remote format for all beginning (4th) and second-year (5th) students! No after-school band or orchestra will occur this fall season due to the Covid-19 pandemic. More updates regarding the spring will be made as the months and the severity of the pandemic pass.

 

 

For Region 3 South Jersey Orchestra: As of today, 9/1/20, SJBODA is considering auditions by students submitting their personal auditions by video online. When they officially let us know, I'll update this site and communicate with students, parents, and guardians. Thank you for your patience. Nothing further is known at this time.

 

I am confident we will all have a great year! Email me with questions! 

 

Take care,

 

Mrs. Cheryl Van Buren
