Youth String Ensemble begins in Haywood

Written by 

Voices in the Laurel will hold auditions for “Laurel Strings,” a new string ensemble open to students in grades two-12 in area counties who are currently taking private lessons in violin, viola, cello or bass or have taken at least two years of lessons in the past. Auditions will be held by appointment through Sept. 27. First rehearsals will begin on Oct. 1 in Waynesville.

The ensemble will meet on Tuesdays at First Baptist Church in Waynesville and will perform both a winter and spring concert in conjunction with Voices in the Laurel. The ensemble will also perform at the Voices in the Laurel “I Heart Disney” Valentine Concert in February 2014.

Sarah Smith, the director of the ensemble, has been teaching private lessons in Haywood County since arriving from the Raleigh area more than two years ago.  She has a bachelor’s degree in music education from Huntington University in Indiana and has spent 12 years teaching public school choir, drama and music. She has taught violin and piano privately for the last 17 years.

It was my first time ever playing it, and first time actually hearing about the sport.
