Orchestra Information & Sheet Music

Book 4+ Violin, Viola, and Cello players participate in the Festival Chamber Orchestra. 


This is an ensemble for String students who will be attending the festival both Saturday and Sunday, or Sunday only.  Students will explore the art of chamber music and collaboration while making new friends. It will meet for two rehearsals: one on Saturday, March 9th from 3-4pm, and one on Sunday, March 10th between 11-12 noon.  The performance of this repertoire will take place at 3pm on Sunday prior to the String Play-in at 3:30pm.




Participating students should plan to arrive to the rehearsal with the music well-learned and polished as much as possible.

Students performing  Vivaldi A Minor, 1st movement and later repertoire in Book 4, should prepare Violin 2 parts.

The chamber orchestra is designed to be similar to  a professional orchestra experience, and will be  augmented by faculty and volunteer professional performers.


Because of the very limited rehearsal time for orchestra, parts must be prepared very thoroughly. It is especially important that rhythms and even rests are practiced, because this is often challenging in an orchestral setting.  Additionally, students should listen to the pieces so they know what to expect.
