St Andrews Strings
St Andrews Strings is St Andrews' only string orchestra, performing music from a large variety of genres. Formed in 2017, the group is the Music Society's youngest ensemble.
Strings consists of around 16 - 20 auditioned string players (roughly 9 violins, 3 violas, 3 cellos and a double bass), their small size enabling them to perform unconducted. Repertoire ranges from Classical and Romantic works to modern pieces, including film music.
The ensemble rehearses weekly on a Thursday from 5 - 7pm, typically performing once a semester in concerts alongside the University of St Andrews Chamber Choir.
An audition for St Andrews Strings is required and consists of a prepared piece and some sight-reading. These take place at the start of Semester 1.
