No Classes - Thanksgiving Break

Schauer Youth String Orchestra

The Schauer Arts Center offers two separate ensembles for students who have at least one to two years of training with either a private instructor or school ensemble. As a general rule, our Presto Strings Orchestra best fits our upper-elementary and middle school students, while our Bravura Strings Orchestra best fits our high school students. 

All SYSO members are expected to demonstrate the following :

  • Good intonation with the ability to adjust out-of-tune pitches with minimal effort
  • Proper posture and technique for left- and right- hand positions
  • An understanding of - and ability to identify - accidentals
  • A positive, supportive, cooperative, attitude as well as a maturity and willingness to learn
