Senior strings are directed by Ms. Brenda Muller. Rehearsal nights are split into three: Monday is Violin (I and II) sectionals after school from 3 to 4, Thursday is Senior / Orchestra repertoire from 3 to 5, and Friday is Viola, Cello and Double Bass sectionals from 3 to 4. Besides the usual Winter Melodies and Spring Harmonies, the Senior Strings also participates in : the Messiah, a yearly concert where Strings and the Choir team up to perform Handel's Messiah. Later in the year, we participate in Blue Bridge, which is split between a camp and then a later performance. Camp Wahanowin is where the students and poets join with professionals to work on that year's particular piece which is later performed at several locations.This is not limited to Strings students; any poets may also participate. Concerto Night, a night where motivated students are given the opportunity to play a piece of their choice as a soloist/duo along with the Senior Strings. Overall, Senior Strings is a big family - that's why it is so fun. Jokes aren't strangers to us; we throw them around all the time. Collectively, we work together to perform challenge but exciting and rewarding. Altogether, it leads to a very exciting and fun year.
Junior Strings is directed by Ms. Brenda Muller. Junior Strings rehearse every Tuesday and Wednesday after school, 3-4. This year, junior strings will be featured in; Winter Melodies, Blue bridge Festival, Spring Harmonies. Junior Strings is enjoyable because it's a chance to spend extra time with your classmates getting to learn, make new friends and most importantly have fun! It's a fun and casual environment, yet, it's still a great place to better learn your instrument.
