Prelude Strings Mentorship Opportunities

OAYO musicians in Youth Conservatory, Youth Philharmonic, and Youth Symphony are invited to volunteer as mentors to musicians in our Prelude Strings Program. Prelude Strings is an 8-week program for musicians in 5th through 8th grade and for many is their first experience with ensemble playing. Prelude Strings rehearses on Saturdays from 10:00am to 12:00pm at six different sites across Omaha and Council Bluffs. YCO, YP, and YS musicians are encouraged to select one site at which to mentor. Musicians who volunteer at least once are welcome to play along with their site at the concert. Prelude Strings runs from January 16th to March 5th. Mentors are expected to sit in on rehearsal, assist their section with notes and rhythms, and demonstrate good posture and playing position. Click here to sign up to mentor!
