Happy New Year, and I hope you all had a wonderful holiday break! Miss Tamara, Miss Nora, Miss Joan and I are all more excited than ever about the start of a new year and our new semester. This excitement is also fueled by the coming launch of a new program of Sunnyside String School, our long-anticipated Children’s Orchestra (details below).
Registration is now open for our 2013 Spring Semester. The 20-week semester runs from January 14th (*NEW DATE*) through June 15th, 2013. You will notice the inclusion of extra weeks, to facilitate weekday holidays and breaks. How to register and secure your child’s spot:

WHAT’S NEW AT SUNNYSIDE STRING SCHOOL?
Children’s Orchestra: The large ensemble idea I’ve been writing about will soon become a reality! Open to all young string players (violinists, violists, cellists, and bassists) both inside and outside our school, the orchestra is geared towards more intermediate to advanced players. We will rehearse and perform an engaging, diverse repertoire from Bach to Rock. Participants will benefit from the social and teamwork aspects they’ll develop, and have loads of fun doing it!
The Children’s Orchestra’s first rehearsal will kick off Friday March 1st at 5-5:45pm and will continue likewise every Friday through June 7th. This program will culminate in a concert (date/location TBA). Participation in the orchestra will be determined through audition only. An intermediate or higher ability level is necessary, with an emphasis on sight-reading ability.
To audition: Auditions will be held in February. Please email me to secure an audition date/time.
Fee: Upon successfully passing the audition, the fee will be $50 for the semester. If instrument rentals needed, please inquire.
Guitar Lessons are now available. Please inquire.
We look forward to a fruitful new semester and wish you all a Happy New Year!
Director, Sunnyside String School
