Frequently Asked Questions:

Do you have to be a Charles County Public School Student?

No, any student of any age is welcome to audition for an ensemble. Students are strongly encouraged to participate in their school ensembles as well.

What do you do besides rehearse? 

Students in all ensembles perform concerts in January and May, and have the opportunity to take part in other performances at the Charles County Fair, String Mentor Day, Kris Kringle Christmas Market, and the Arts Fest in La Plata. Students also benefit from sectional coachings and masterclasses. See "Additional Opportunities" page. 

How much does it cost?  

The membership fee for any of the groups is $145 for the year. ($95 for half year membership.) Averaging about $5 per week, it's affordable and reasonable. Financial aid is also available, so don't let financial concerns keep you from participating!

How do I get involved?

Check out the "Auditions" page for requirements and sign up to schedule an audition. 

What if the audition date has passed?
