Invite your middle school string friends to join AYSP!
Do you have middle school string friends that would like to be part of AYSP? Tell them about the Junior String Orchestra!
WHAT IS JUNIOR STRING ORCHESTRA
The AYSP Junior String Orchestra (JSO) is comprised of 40-60 dedicated middle-school violin, viola, cello, and string bass students across the Albuquerque, Rio Rancho and surrounding areas. Conducted by Ms. Erica Photiades, JSO learns and performs music written or arranged for string orchestra, while focusing on excellent playing technique, sight reading skills, and group ensemble skills.
Junior String Orchestra rehearses weekly on Saturdays from 8:45 AM – 10:45 AM January 26 through April 27 at the AYSP Facility, 4407 Menaul Blvd. NE. The semester culminates with a Finale Concert in Popejoy Hall on Sunday, April 28, 2019.
NO AUDITION REQUIRED
To be eligible for Junior String Orchestra you must play in your school orchestra. If your school does not have an orchestra program, you must take private lessons on your instrument.
We rely on donations from generous individuals and businesses like you to provide symphonic performance experiences to Albuquerque’s talented young musicians and access to music education for students in need.
