There are plenty of strings attached when you are a principal chair in an orchestra. Students are learning this in The Music and Arts Center for Cultural Learning’s Youth Orchestra this fall.
For the first time, Sept. 26, the orchestra conducted auditions for the various orchestral chairs, with principal chair being the most advanced. In orchestras, like football and other team sports, each person is given a position that best suits their skill level. These positions are called chairs.
