Vandenberg is thrilled to offer elementary string orchestra once more. Currently it is open to 5th graders only but we hope for expansion next year. This group meets once a week on Tuesdays from 3:15-4:00 and works with Mrs. Knoll to learn violin, viola, and cello (no bass players in the group at this time).

Mrs. Karen Knoll has a music education degree in performance. She can be found at Birney during the day and afterschool she travels to a variety of different schools to run the elementary strings program. She is currently the concermaster of the Detroit Community Orchestra.
