SODA, String Orchestra of Decatur and Atlanta, began its inaugural season in September 2010 with 18 students and now has over 40! The idea of SODA, is to allow students the opportunity to play in an ensemble outside of school or private lessons. I hope for SODA to be a stepping stone for the more advanced high school orchestras that are available in the area. The students will learn the basics of playing in an orchestra, such as how to follow a conductor, how to lead a section, how to create a beautiful sound, and most importantly, how to listen and play with other instruments.
Currently, we have violin, viola and cello students between 3rd and 10th grade. SODA will be accepting new applicants for the group every September and January. If you would like more information, please see the flyer below or visit our website at www.SODAGeorgia.com
