The International Symphony Orchestra welcomes young string players from Lambton and St. Clair Counties to participate in its Youth Ensemble Initiative. Violinists, violists, cellists and bassists of all levels are invited. Beginning adult members, or those wishing to improve their skills are also encouraged to take part. Weekly rehearsals focus on: note-reading; technique; intonation; ensemble playing, and having fun! Recitals demonstrate progress and accomplishments.
A modest fee applies, however, bursary assistance is available based on financial need.

The first rehearsal of the 2016-2017 Season will take place on Wednesday, October 5th, 6:30 p.m., in the Lochiel Kiwanis Community Centre, 180 College Street North, Sarnia.

The Ensemble is under the direction of International Symphony Orchestra violinist/violist Stephen Collins. A native of Michigan, Mr. Collins holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Performance (violin and viola); a Master’s in Pedagogy (teaching) and Performance; and is certified in violin restoration/repair. Mr. Collins has performed professionally with numerous orchestras, and has taught extensively at all levels, from beginners through to University programs.
This Youth Education Initiative is supported by International Symphony Orchestra sponsorship.
