Camerata Strings is the intermediate-level string ensemble of the youth orchestra program. To gain entrance into Camerata, students must pass an audition, the first such experience for many students. In this ensemble, students learn how to make music as an ensemble, and take seating auditions regularly. Students’ skills are challenged with increasingly difficult repertoire and attention to phrasing, bowings, dynamics and articulations.
