Class changes name to ‘Camerata Strings’

The Upper School Concert Strings course will be renamed “Camerata Strings” next school year to “clarify the progression that students are making as they are promoted to the upper school ensemble,” music teacher Mark Hilt said.

“Part of our review process is to make certain that the different classes lead, one to the next,” Hilt said. “We felt that having a class called Concert Strings at the [upper school] as well did not serve the progression of study that we are trying to strengthen.”

“[Camerate Florentina] has acquired a musical connotation as ‘a group of friends involved in a common purpose,’” Hilt said.
