Program Response to Covid-19

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Strings for Generations met virtually during the Fall of 2020 and Spring of 2021. The virtual program involved a mix of small-group sectional coaching led by Pacific Symphony instructors and larger-group ensemble coaching led by Pacific Symphony’s Assistant Conductor, Dr. Jacob Sustaita. 

Strings for Generations is not currently meeting.

Through this one-of-a-kind program, family members play and learn about music together under the direction of professional music educators and Symphony musicians. Strings for Generations is geared toward students in grades 4 – 9 and at least one adult family member who participates with them. No musical experience is required for adults. 
“My daughter and I loved this program! Previously, we never experienced a collaborative musical project together—guided by such high-quality instruction. Sharing the experience of learning and performing music with my daughter made it easier for me to appreciate the effort and also the joy in learning music. My daughter tremendously enjoyed playing with me, has increased her love of music, and values my input more when she practices during the week. This is a wonderful program that has brought us even closer together.”
