The Abilene Youth Strings (AYS) is a class for string players ready for a new challenge, but not quite ready for the demands of the advanced AYO repertoire. This high energy class will be by audition only, and will help students improve string technique, music literacy, and more advanced sightreading skills. It is open for students from 5th grade- 9th grade.

These classes will meet Sunday afternoons, 2:30pm-4:30pm, at the ACU Williams Performing Arts Center.

Auditions open for all strings (violin, viola, cello, bass)

Audition information will be provided soon.

AYS will begin its 2024-2025 season on September 8, 2024.
