Students who have some bowed stringed instrument experience or would like to learn are welcome to join. There are two levels offered: A beginning level that meets on Tuesdays from 5:00- 5:45 PM.  There is also a “level 2” group for those with some experience, but may not be ready for the challenge of the Youth Orchestra. It meets on Tuesdays from 5:45- 6:30 PM. 

We encourage students who do not have a school string program to also take private lessons from the many community private string teachers in our area. We also stress that participation in these groups is to complement the school music programs, not replace it.

Both the Youth and Junior Youth Orchestras rehearse in the Philharmonic Hall in downtown Belleville and participate in concerts around the community. The cost to participate in one of the youth orchestra programs is only $75 per child. ​The amount is prorated to $50 starting in January.
