Sinfonietta Seating Explanation

Seating for the Sinfonietta Orchestra will rotate on a weekly basis. By moving players around the section, students get to know each other better and it allows them the opportunity to develop a better sense of ensemble playing. It is important to keep in mind that performing up front does not mean they are better players, playing in the middle does not mean they are in the safe zone and playing in back does not mean they are the weaker player.

Placement in back usually means you are a strong, secure player with a good ear and an eye on the conductor.  During the first few rehearsals, I will be selecting students with exceptional leadership skills and musicianship to be section leaders. These responsibilities usually change every concert cycle.  Lastly, it is my goal to give your child the best musical experience possible and I feel that flexibility in seating helps in teaching early ensemble playing.
