Upper School Adds Strings Course

There’s a string of excitement in the air! That’s because, come next year, our musically inclined students will have the opportunity to participate in a new String Ensemble course. The course will be open to all Upper School students who have two or more years’ experience playing the violin, viola, ‘cello or double-bass. The ensemble will perform music such as movie scores, pop music and classical pieces for school concerts and community events.

“Other than practicing, there will be minimal ‘homework’ for the course,” said David Doherty, who will serve as the instructor. “And students will receive academic credit for each trimester of String Ensemble.”
