Rehearsals are held every Tuesday evening throughout the season for the Westminster Youth String Ensemble & Chamber Players at the Westerly Senior Citizens Center, Westerly, RI, just outside downtown Westerly, RI.
Festival Strings rehearse for two 6 week sessions: (1) October through December & (2) March through May. Annual tuition for the Festival Strings is $150.00
Auditions are held annually prior to the beginning of each season so each student can be appropriately placed in the correct ensemble to provide the best learning experience. Students are expected to take private lessons and are accepted upon recommendation by their private teacher.
Tuition is $300.00 for the year and can be paid as a single installment at the beginning of the year, or divided into two equal payments due at the beginning of each term. Discounted tuition is available for additional family members.
Scholarships, both full and partial, are available. Contact the director regarding availability of these funds.
