Under the direction of CYSO Director of String Ensembles Daniella Valdez, Accelerando Strings provides string orchestra training to high school aged student musicians. The Accelerando Strings season includes weekly rehearsals that focus on technique, basic string repertoire, musicianship and presentation skills.
Accelerando Strings students perform two concerts at local venues such as Roosevelt University’s Ganz Hall and a community concert at a CPS high school.
Members of Accelerando Strings also have the opportunity to participate in Music Theory courses.
Accelerando Strings rehearses weekly on Saturdays from 1:00 – 3:00 pm.
