String Orchestra

Overview

ACS (J) String Orchestra has come a long way since its inception. Today, with a new vision and direction, the orchestra is moving towards the development of its own distinctive musical personality. Emphasis will be on the development of the left-hand articulation to the precise execution of the bow arm; to continue to explore the variety of the dynamic spectrum accompanied by learning the artistry of blending and balancing of tone; to cultivate a mature musical collaborative character within each section as well as between each section so that the musicians are able to respond musically to one another; to expand and consolidate the standard string orchestra repertoire; enthusiastic participation in competitive music festivals both local and abroad so as to constantly bring the performance level to new heights; and most importantly, to provide a platform for our young musicians to grow up as strong advocates in the arena of performing arts.

Pupils with violin, viola, cello and double bass background are welcome to sign up. The minimum requirement is a Grade 4 at ABRSM or equivalent for their respective instruments. For those who signed up for the CCA, an audition will be conducted before confirmation of membership. Those who don't play any instrument but have the interest and love for music may consider building up their music skills at an external music academy in view of joining the orchestra in the future.
