Cadenza String Orchestra of Temecula Valley

Cadenza String Orchestra of Temecula Valley

 

Cadenza String Orchestra of Temecula Valley, CA seeks to educate musicians of all ages and to provide experience in various ensembles and musical settings. Founded by Sandi and Christine del Rosario, members are primarily students of the Cadenza School of Music and also former students, teachers, parents and friends. Musicians are given indepth training and exposure to an eclectic blend of music; from baroque to contemporary with some Beatles, Little Einsteins and film music in between. Professional musicians from Asia and across the continental U.S. are regularly invited to give workshops to orchestra members. The orchestra performs at senior homes, schools, churches and other venues as a community service or in an official capacity. These activities contribute greatly to the character building of our musicians.
