The ISO Trinity-Florentine Orchestra was formed in 2010 as a partnership with Trinity Wall Street and the Florentine Music School. Led by Amelia Hollander Ames, it draws young musicians from lower Manhattan, Chinatown, Brooklyn, and Staten Island.
The ISO Trinity-Florentine 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.
