Elemental StringsThe Symphony is proud to be official partners with Elemental Strings, a youth orchestra for Santa Monica’s fourth and fifth grade students. The partnership represents both organizations’ commitment to promoting the enjoyment of music throughout our community.
Founded in 2004 as a small orchestra for Santa Monica elementary schoolers, Elemental Strings has worked with over 275 young musicians in the past seven seasons. The program now boasts two separate orchestras, Sinfonia and Chamber, and a teaching staff that includes educators and professional musicians from throughout the Los Angeles Area. Students rehearse weekly at John Adams Middle School and enjoy many music-related opportunities, including concert visits, field trips, and free weekly lessons with program alumni.
Elemental Strings’ orchestras have entertained the Symphony’s audiences before numerous concerts in past years. “We’ve been thrilled to be invited to open for the Santa Monica Symphony,” said Elemental Strings Executive and Artistic Director Josephine Liu Moerschel. “I hope that by bringing our students to the concerts, we can also help the Symphony grow their audience base.”
