King hosts an annual El Sistema Residency, in which talented musicians from King’s Middle and Upper Schools collaborate in intensive music workshops with visiting students of various El Sistema USA programs, including Stamford’s own Project Music. The overarching focus of the residency is to inspire a connection between communities of different socioeconomic backgrounds, using the music ensemble as the vehicle through which to inspire deeper communication.
Project Music uses music to make a difference in the lives of Stamford’s youth, empowering them with fundamental life skills and a pathway to their full potential through access to a highly engaging, rigorous, after-school music program which includes free instruments, music instruction, mentorship, and opportunities to perform. King faculty and former faculty are staff of Project Music and hosts the organization at King School.
Orchestra of Tomorrow
The Orchestra of Tomorrow is an integrated, modern ensemble that reimagines the traditional orchestral instrumentation, repertoire, and concert setting. We believe that the orchestra is not just a string centric ensemble that plays mostly classical music but it is an ensemble that is open to all instruments that have a desire to play and create music that is relevant today.
All Instruments are welcomed: Brass, Woodwinds, Percussion, Piano/Keyboards, Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass, Guitar-all types.
Skill Level: Opened to all MS & US instrumentalists.
Rehearsals: Tuesdays, 4:00-6:00 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center
Performances: There will be 2-4 community performances throughout the year. Dates and times will be announced.
