About Us

The Blacksburg Community Strings, a community ensemble of violin, viola, cello and string bass players, was formed in October 1999 and had its debut public performance in December 1999. It is made up of middle and high school students, avocational community players, and active and retired professionals.

 

The goals of the Blacksburg Community Strings are:

 

  • To study and learn a wide variety of music written for string orchestra and smaller ensembles;

  • To provide local amateur string players with opportunities to play and perform in a non-competitive environment, without the requirement of having to travel long distances;

  • To share the members' talents and love of music by performing for the community;

  • To produce beautiful music and have fun doing it!
