Camerata and Sinfonia Strings
Sinfonia Strings was founded in 1998 by the Jackson Symphony’s Principal Violist, Margaret Thomas. The orchestra, under the direction of Tricia Wilburn, offers an outstanding ensemble experience for intermediate level string players. The orchestra rehearses weekly on Tuesday evenings from 5:30-6:30 PM at The Symphony’s downtown offices, and performs three concerts during the year.
Membership is open to string students who have attained enough facility on their instrument to perform level 2-3 string orchestra music.
Camerata Strings was formed in the summer of 2008 as an educational program for string students at the elementary level who have basic note-reading ability but are not yet ready to qualify for the intermediate ensemble Sinfonia Strings. The Camerata program is led by Joy Krimm, and meets on Mondays and Thursdays from 4:00 – 5:00 PM at The Symphony office at 207 E. Lafayette St.
Both of these ensembles perform three concerts during the year. The student receive free tickets to all regular Symphony season concerts, and pay a small annual tuition fee.
