Middle School instrumental music students continue developing their sight reading and technical abilities through the preparation of various compositions that encompass a range of styles and time periods with increasing levels of difficulty. The current Chamber Ensemble includes strings, harp, flute, clarinet, and bass clarinet. Other instruments may be included at the discretion of the director. Students who do not currently play an instrument may join the Chamber Ensemble if they commit to taking private lessons throughout the year in order to catch up with the ensemble. Instruments available to beginning students are flute, oboe, clarinet, bass clarinet, bassoon, trumpet, french horn, or any member of the string family.
