Claflin Hill Youth Repertory Ensemble
CHYS Repertory Ensemble
An ensemble created for less advanced musicians, which offers a challenging, yet manageable experience for string players who might be overwhelmed by the full orchestra’s repertoire. Led by professional violist Dimitar Petkov, this group plays music that is more demanding than what is available in most schools. Senior CHYS string players serve as mentors to this group, participating in rehearsals and guiding the younger students. CHYS Repertory Ensemble students are moved to the full youth orchestra, as determined by the conductors, when they are able to play the more demanding music.
