Home of United String Ensembles is a chamber music program specifically for Oakland Unified School District middle school students who would otherwise have no opportunity to further their skills in violin, viola, cello and bass. By providing the individual attention needed to be fine musicians, H.o.U.S.E will support our Oakland string students to succeed in participating in local Youth Orchestras of the Bay Area.
We, the Co-Directors of Home of United String Ensembles, Linda Green and Sara Usher are excited to work with this excellent group of dedicated people to present this program to the Oakland East Bay Community.
