The Scor! Experience
What About My Level?
Check out what Scor! General Track participants are saying in this video.
You'll have various small-group music making opportunities depending on which Track you select (see Choose Your Perfect Track below). You'll be able to choose your favorite activity from those listed below.
Chamber Groups: (General & Performance Track) If you opt for a chamber group, you will be placed into an ensemble according to your playing level. (Pre-formed ensembles are welcome.) You will rehearse and receive coaching daily, and can opt to participate in a masterclass and/or share your music with your new Scor! friends. Fee applies.
Groove Ensemble: (General and Performance Track) The Groove Ensemble explores groove-based styles, such as contemporary fiddle, blues, jazz, & rock. We’ll do some improvising (no experience necessary), reading, listening, and playing by ear. Get your musical creative juices flowing, and get ready to have a blast! Led by Robert Gardner.
Sectionals: (General Track only) Sectionals provide you guided practice time on your orchestra music in a small group of peers led by an experienced teacher.
Lesson Groups: (Basic & Foundations Track only) Small group instruction that takes you to the next level! Personalized attention from experienced teachers helps you improve and love what you do even more.
Build your ensemble skills and work with experienced, friendly, funny, high-energy conductors. We have an orchestra for every level!

In Scor!-chestra, you'll learn some beautiful string orchestra music, focus on making a good section sound, and enhance your ensemble skills and musicality. Up for a challenge? Try the Chamber Orchestra where you'll dig into more demanding music and deeper levels of expression. In the String Orchestra, you'll have fun learning ensemble fundamentals that will leave you swimming, not sinking (no prior ensemble experience needed). See the String Orchestra on You-Tube
