Daniel Hand High School Chamber Ensemble

February 13th, 1:30pm

The string Chamber Ensemble was created in 2008 as an opportunity for the talented string musicians at Daniel Hand School in Madison, Connecticut to learn and perform more difficult repertoire as well as develop different ensemble skills that they wouldn’t necessarily experience in the regular orchestra class. Since its creation, the group has performed locally in Connecticut and selected members have also been given the opportunity to perform as quartets and duets at few weddings. Having 12-14 members allows the group to try a large range of musical styles, as well as perform their own compositions and arrangements.
