Primo and Primo Intermezzo
Our entry-level string ensemble for string players in grades 4 through 8, Primo is for many young musicians their first experience in orchestral playing. In Primo, the focus is on accessible repertoire, sight-reading, string technique, scales, and successful auditioning skills.
Primo Intermezzo is a small group of more advanced Primo members selected by invitation.
Primo Intermezzo students rehearse with the rest of Primo (violins, violas, cellos and basses) then stay an additional half hour to rehearse Intermezzo repertoire.
Rehearses Sundays: 4:00-5:00pm (Primo), 4:00-5:30pm (Primo Intermezzo)
