This orchestra is the developmental orchestra. It gives students an opportunity to maintain their string music connection while participating in other school activities. Additional before/after school rehearsals leading up to concerts will be on an as needed basis, with notification at least one week in advance. Attendance at ALL Sinfonietta performances and rehearsals (both during the school day and any after school rehearsals) is required, including the performances of the other Grand Oaks orchestras on the same date. Sinfonietta will rehearse after school as scheduled in the weeks leading up to a concert.
