Peabody Strings Orchestra


Saturday, January 24, 2015


02:00 PM–03:00 PM

Peabody Strings Orchestra

Promising young musicians from the Peabody Institute's Performance Academy for Strings will perform an hour-long concert of classical music.

The Performance Academy for Strings brings together serious string students in grades 7-12, playing at the upper intermediate and advanced level, who will develop musically and socially in a mutually supportive and challenging environment. The Performance Academy is a vibrant program that offers individual instruction, small and large ensembles, performance opportunities, master classes, enrichment activities, rehearsal time with a designated pianist, special events, and career guidance and feedback.

The Performance Academy fosters the development of young string players by offering them a curriculum that prepares them for professional studies. This program is for students who want to pursue a career in music, and for students with other professional aspirations for whom music is their major non-academic endeavor.
