Youth Instrumental Ensembles

Lawrence Academy of Music ensembles provide an opportunity to play, rehearse and perform with other musicians. The Academy offers a string orchestra and two bands. With instruction and coaching from dedicated teaching staff, participants will prepare a wide variety of repertoire for public performance.

Membership in Academy instrumental ensembles is meant to augment, not replace, school bands or orchestras.  Therefore, we expect all Academy ensemble members to be enrolled in a curricular performance ensemble.
