• Sinfonietta Strings


    Sinfonietta Strings is designed to provide a unique opportunity for string students in the 7th and 8h grades. With the idea of a chamber ensemble in mind, students in Sinfonietta participate in artistic decision-making together, often rehearsing and performing without a conductor. Team building and cultivating student leadership are important parts of this process. The ensemble performs advanced repertoire ranging from traditional classical to modern. Sinfonietta Strings meets once a week for rehearsals on select Fridays at 7:20am and has many performance opportunities in addition to scheduled school concerts. Often, additional rehearsals are added as we approach important events. Students interested in participating in Sinfonietta Strings should feel free to contact Dr. Rotjan at mrotjan@scarsdaleschools.org for any additional information and with any questions.
