Elementary Strings Workshop

Hosted by the Emerson, Da Vinci & Harper Jr. High Advanced Orchestra

Directed by Greg Brucker


This free workshop will give our returning elementary strings students an introduction to the orchestras and the excitement that awaits you at the junior high level. It’s fun, motivating, and musically educational.  The afternoon is full of fun new music and wonderful long lasting connections, as you work with 8th and 9th grade orchestra students and Jr. High Orchestra Director, Greg Brucker. The day ends in a high-spirited concert where all participants will have the opportunity to show off their new skills. The concert starts at 4:30 PM, and is a free event. Mr. Brucker will be available to answer parent and student questions after the concert. Come and have a great time taking your music making to the next level!
