Molde kulturskole’s string orchestra consists of 16 string-players aged 10-15 years, playing violin, viola, cello, and double bass. From time to time the orchestra expands with some of the older students to get support for concerts.
The string teachers at Molde Cultural School have the musical responsibility for the orchestra, while the parenting group takes care of the social aspects. In 2017 they had the pleasure of visiting a friendship orchestra in Gernsbach, Germany.
For the last two years, the orchestra has focused on music from movies and games, but are also performing works from the classical repertoire.
