EXCITING NEWS —
Launching Philadelphia Sinfonia Strings!
You asked and we listened! Due to high demand from
teachers and students, Philadelphia Sinfonia is launching a new
ensemble, Philadelphia Sinfonia Strings (PSS), that will serve
students aged 10–16 who are not quite ready for our intermediate
orchestra, but who are ready to build orchestral skills that
will take them to the next level of playing in an advanced ensemble.
This group will rehearse for an hour and a half on Sundays from
1:00-2:30 PM and will be taught byBeth Dzwil, a
professional viola player and string pedagogue, along with special coaching by Maestro Gary White and Maestra Danielle Garrett.
Rehearsals will begin in October and go through mid-May. Over
the course of the season, PSS will present two performances.
We encourage you and your students to take advantage of
this exciting new educational opportunity.
Tuition: $700 for the season;
need-based financial aid is available.
Sinfonia is easily accessible by transportation: We
are within two blocks of all SEPTA Regional Rail lines and the
PATCO high speed line, and inexpensive parking is available right
across the street.
