The HOPE Strings Orchestra is a string musical class opportunity open to children ages 6 years old through 18 whose families are current HOPE members. The group's vision is to provide the chance for musical education and lessons at an accessible tuition. We focus on performance as well as musical theory, rhythm and appreciation. Our music teachers have been drawn from across many walks of life and experience and currently we are working with two students from UTRGV. We are able to offer violin, viola and cello. Each year the orchestra gives two recitals, fall and spring, and also performs every December at the Annual Dillard's VIP Nite. We have also had the privilege of playing at the Freddie Gonzalez Veteran's Home.
