Centre Strings


Centre Strings is a student/community string orchestra dedicated to musical and interpersonal excellence. We do not support competition in any form, including seating. We play music of all genres and strive for artistic and human diversity.


Don Nixon and Dr. Lyn Schenbeck began Centre Strings in September of 2004. We have grown from 8 members to 44. Musicians are ages 8 to 78. We welcome anyone who wants to play and will work with people who haven’t played in a while and want to rebuild their skills. If you have played for at least 2 years you are eligible to join. Instruments we need are violins, violas, cellos, and basses. We do not require a formal audition. All of our concerts are performed at The Donald W. Nixon Centre for Performing and Visual Arts, except for run-outs we do at senior centers or churches.

We rehearse on Tuesday evenings when school is in session from 6:30 to 7:45 pm.
