The ISO Queens East Orchestra, our newest ensemble, makes its debut in September 2012. This ensemble is being formed in partnership with PS 115 (Glen Oaks School) and will draw young musicians from Queens, especially from those in Council District 23.
The ISO Queens East Orchestra motivates young musicians to work together to make music. Repertoire ranges from age-appropriate original compositions to standard classical works arranged for young players. The orchestras for young people provide a strong grounding in fundamental and necessary orchestral concepts in a community-oriented and goal-centered environment. Players should have started private lessons and possess basic skills, including the ability to read music. These ensembles prepare students for advancement and growth through each of the subsequent ISO ensembles. Registration fee, tuition, and an audition are required.
The Queens East Orchestra is made possible with the generous support of NYC Council Member Mark Weprin (District 23).
Conductor, Joseph Seifers
