Spencer Brook Strings

Spencer Brook Youth Orchestra 

We were wishing to return to Saturday morning orchestra this fall.  But considering the resurgence of Covid, we think it's best to wait and see.  We are aiming for to restart in January 2022.


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.  Junior Orchestra meets from 9:00-10:00; Senior Orchestra meets from 10:30-12:30.

We perform three concerts a year.

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