Attacca Strings



About Attacca strings

FMAYS' newest ensemble, Attacca Strings, is an exciting opportunity for dedicated young musicians to participate in a challenging string orchestra setting. In this capacity, students are given a more exposed role where every performer's musical voice can be heard, and everyone has a chance to be a great leader! Attacca Strings is for strings players in grades 9-12.

Youth are selected for each orchestra through auditions and all youth must audition annually for placement in their respected orchestra. FMAYS’ members are chosen on the basis of musical skill and the needs of the orchestras. A strong commitment to attend all rehearsals is expected.  Attacca Strings is directed by Ms. Lindsay Schwartz.



Members are expected to attend all rehearsals. Only absences for legitimate and important reasons will be accepted.  Attendance at dress rehearsals is mandatory in order to be able to participate in the concert or scheduled performance.

Advanced notice of any absences must be given by calling FMAYS’ at 701.929.1814 or emailing to
