Spencer Brook Strings

Spencer Brook Youth Orchestra 

Since 1985 the Spencer Brook Youth Orchestra has provided young musicians the opportunity to make music together, in an atmosphere of fun and friendship. Rehearsals are held on Saturdays, under the direction of our conductor, Paul Leder. Recent programs have included music of Vivaldi, Mozart, Grieg, and Duke Ellington.  This all happens at our shop, 15 Nason Street in Maynard, MA. 

Placement in Junior or Senior orchestra is determined by audition or recommendation of the private teacher–but in most cases Junior Orchestra is for students from 2nd to 6th grade, while Senior Orchestra is for students from 7th to 12th.

Rehearsals are on Saturdays, starting October 6th.   Junior Orchestra meets from 9:00-10:00; Senior Orchestra meets from 10:30-12:30.

We perform three concerts a year: December 16th, February 10th (our all Vivaldi program) and May 19th.

Concerts start at 6:30; Seniors arrive at 4:25 for pre-concert rehearsal and pizza hour; juniors arrive just after 6:00 for tuning/warm-up.

Tuition for the year (October-May) Junior Orchestra $310.00; Senior Orchestra $380.00. Single semester membership is available by arrangement. Scholarships are available.
