String Orchestra

Western's String Orchestra rehearses daily and is open to anyone in grades 9-12.  Students in String Orchestra not only practice as a large group and by smaller sections, but they are also encouraged to take private lessons from our orchestra instructor, Mrs. Nancy Vermeer.  Through large-group practices and private lessons, the goals of developing musical skills and appreciation of a variety of musical styles can be attained. 

Western's String Orchestra performs at fall, winter, and spring concerts, as well as attending the Dordt College String Festival on alternating years.  A highlight of the year for many string students is the annual String Tour, which takes Western's String Orchestra to various local Christian grade schools.  The tour is intended to share some great music with local grade school students while encouraging them to consider participation in a Strings program.
