Northwoods Strings Ensembles

Please note: Our ensembles are on hold for 2020/2021 School year due to concerns about being hold ensembles in a safe manner. Instead, NWS will be hosting some fun “String Thing Hangouts” to give students the opportunity to interact with and learn from professional musicians. If you are interesting in joining us for these, please let us know by contacting us. Check the “Spring 2021” page for more details.

About NorthWoods String Ensembles
