Primary Strings

Primary Strings is an ensemble specifically designed for our youngest students (recommended for grades: K- 5). This program marks the start of our student's musical journey where they'll learn the basics of playing an instrument and participate in group performances. We believe these first steps will spark a love for music and lay a strong foundation for their continued involvement with the Cape Symphony Youth Orchestra Program (CSYOP). In Primary Strings, we emphasize teamwork and collaboration, key skills that will enhance their overall musicianship and ability to play in a group setting. Our goal is to inspire a lifelong passion for music, equipping students with the necessary tools for their ongoing musical adventure.

  • Time: Saturdays 8:45AM – 9:15AM
  • Location: Cape Symphony West Barnstable Campus
