Youth String Ensemble
The Youth String Ensemble (EPYSE), under the direction of Mr. Rodrigo Maldonado, is an intermediate level string orchestra (advanced beginning and intermediate string players with some orchestral experience). This group encourages exploration, leadership, and musicality while playing as part of a whole.
The Youth String Ensemble (EPYSE) is for students:
9 to 15 Years of Age
Though the majority of students fit into these age groups, upon request, exceptions are considered on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the Music Director, in consultation with the conductors.
*tuition rates are subject to change
Rehearsals: Saturdays, 2:00pm to 4:30pm
Rehearsal for the Fall and Spring semesters do vary at certain times but will remain consistent.
No qualifying student will be turned away from the EPSYO because of an inability to pay tuition. The EPSYO fundraises to provide tuition payment financial aid for musicians whose families demonstrate exceptional need.
Please note that it is mandatory for students receiving financial assistance to participate in fundraisers.
