Soothing sounds of Snoqualmie Strings
The Snoqualmie Strings youth orchestra plays at noon, Saturday, at the community stage. Student musicians will be performing their summer song selection.
Their selections will include folk songs like “Old Joe Clark,” as well as more contemporary movie themes from “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “Hairspray.” Students have been responsible for learning and practicing songs throughout the year.
Snoqualmie Strings is a youth orchestra program for school-aged kids, 6 to 18, playing the string instruments: violin, viola, cello or bass. The orchestra is directed by Sheila Bateman, who has more than 20 years of experience teaching children to play music. The purpose of the orchestra is to provide opportunities for children to learn music which may not be available otherwise. Bateman hopes to give beginning and advancing players a place to play with peers, expand their repertoire and play in a variety of local performance venues.
