The Sinfonia Youth Orchestra program is the premier training orchestra in Northwest Florida and consists of more than 50 students who perform throughout the school year in one of two ensembles: The Sinfonietta Strings and the Sinfonia Youth Orchestra. Conductor Aaron King Vaughn has officially announced their call for new youth musicians to join for the 2020-2021 year.
40 talented young musicians 6-12 grade—advanced string, woodwind, brass and percussionists—make up the orchestra’s core. Membership is now open to any qualified musician. Weekly rehearsals for the Sinfonia Youth Orchestra will begin Sun., Sept. 13 from 2:30 – 4 p.m. at Destin Commons in the vacant merchant space between Express and Steve Madden.
Sinfonietta String’s membership is open to developing string players, with at least two years of lessons, or recommendations from their music teachers. Sinfonietta Strings is a training program to prepare the musicians to move up to the full orchestra. Weekly rehearsals will begin on Sunday, September 13 from 1- 2:15 p.m. at Destin Commons in the vacant merchant space between Express and Steve Madden.
“The overwhelming response from our students and parents was that they were excited to return to rehearsals in person,” said Aaron. “We are taking extensive safety measures to ensure the students are socially distanced appropriately during all rehearsals.”
Registration is $175 for the fall term or $350 for the year and is sponsored by Sinfonia Gulf Coast. For more information about these programs or to register your child, visit www.SinfoniaGulfCoast.org/education or contact Aaron at (850) 460-8800 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
