Julianne Eberl, orchestra director for King, Lincoln and Lyman Moore middle schools, is introducing the Portland Public Schools’ Middle School Preparatory Orchestra, with rehearsals starting in August. “This program is free and open to all Portland Public Schools’ current fourth- and fifth-grade string students who are going into fifth- and sixth-grade this September,” Eberl said.

She said that beginning string students will be introduced to middle school orchestra music that the Portland Public Schools will be starting in September. Students will develop sight-reading skills and build on their knowledge of music notation for their instruments.

Meetings will be held on the following dates from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at each of the three middle schools so students can explore their new orchestra’s playing space: Monday, Aug. 14, Lincoln Middle School; Tuesday, Aug. 15, King Middle School; and Wednesday, Aug. 16, Lyman Moore Middle School. On Thursday, Aug. 17, at Moore Middle School, there will be a culminating “Jam Session”, with refreshments, also running from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

Students are welcome to attend any and/or all of the rehearsals.
