Preparatory String Orchestra (PSO) is open to violin, viola, cello, and string bass students in grade levels 4 and 5.
Auditions are not required for Preparatory String Orchestra. Instead, please submit our online application as soon as possible. A recommendation from a private teacher is REQUIRED for new students (not for students enrolled during the previous season) - more info below.
Applications of new students must be accompanied by a recommendation from the student’s private instructor indicating that the student can play at the appropriate level. See samples of repertoire from Preparatory Strings for guidance. Recommendations should be emailed to Ms. Velasco by the private teacher at email@example.com. Please put "Prep Strings - Student Name" in the subject.
