Conservatory Players Orchestra: A Reading Ensemble for String Players
Conservatory Players is a reading string orchestra program intended for students ages 6–12. If your student is a complete beginner, check out our Growing Roots program for beginning string players. If your student uses Suzuki repertoire in their individual lessons, we highly recommend bundling Conservatory Players and Suzuki Repertoire class, which are scheduled back to back.
Allegro is for string players who have some experience on their instrument and (violin, viola, cello, bass) are playing at a Suzuki Book 1 Level (or equivalent). This class is perfect for Sprouts graduates and Growing Roots graduates. A placement video is required for Allegro.
Brio is for string players who have already participated in at least one year of Conservatory Players, and are ready for the next level! Prerequisite playing level is Suzuki Book 2-3, with the ability to read first-position notes on all strings and basic rhythms. A placement video is required for Brio.
Students in both levels will learn basic ensemble skills, like following a conductor and playing together as well as strengthening their note reading ability! This ensemble will be featured in concert performances throughout the year.
