about us

Sturgis Strings is the school string ensemble which combines students from both Sturgis East and Sturgis West.

Who should join? Students in grades 9-12 are invited to participate in this extracurricular group. It is recommended that the student interested in joining this group either has previous string ensemble experience, can read sheet music, a well-developed ear, or is very dedicated to music making!

What does the group play? A mix of pop, traditional Western Art Music, film music, and seasonal selections are common in this group. The music is occasionally accompanied in some manner.

When does the group meet?
The rehearsals will take place at the West campus on Thursdays from 3.30 PM to 5.00 PM starting Thursday, October 1st. From 3.30 to 4.00 we will be focusing on individual/sectional work. From 4 to 5 we will be working with the full ensemble.

East students who are hybrid on Tuesdays will need to walk (or drive themselves, or have a guardian drive them) to the West campus. Note that students should not drive other students at this time. Students who are remote on Tuesdays will need to arrange transportation to and from the school. Students/guardians will need to complete and return the driving waiver prior to rehearsal in order to attend. (Digital submission is encouraged!)
