EXCITING NEWS! For the 2017-18 Season, we are adding a second String Academy 2 orchestra! Since this ensemble is geared toward those who have taken at least one year of our String Academy 1 classes, we wanted to give more students the opportunity to play at the next level. So we are adding an ensemble in the north Eugene area and rehearsing on a different night to give you more opportunities for your child to continue strings! Here are the new schedules:
String Academy 2 – North and South
SA2 South will meet at SEHS on Mondays, from 4:15-5:45pm with Lauralie Kallinen
SA2 North will meet at Kelly MS on Tuesdays, from 4:15-5:45pm with Dale Bradley
Rehearsals begin Sept 25th for SA2 South, and Sept 26th for SA2 North.
SA2 REGISTRATION FORMS ARE DUE BY YOUR FIRST REHEARSAL*
*if you need to turn it in later, just please call the office and let us know your situation. Thanks!

These ensemble provides orchestral instruction and performance opportunities to students who play the violin, viola, cello or string bass. It is the perfect “first orchestra” for students who have taken String Academy 1 classes, or for any student with at least one year of strings experience. There is no audition required. SA2 students gain experience from playing in a string ensemble and present several concerts, including a final formal concert.
Congratulations on the last year’s concert! SA2 musicians provided wonderful inspiration for the 130 younger SA1 students with a fine first performance!
