Making music with lots of other people is tremendously rewarding and very therapeutic. No matter how bad your day at school has been, you’ll soon forget about your troubles once you sit down in front of your music and throw yourself into a performance. Playing in an orchestra is an incredibly intellectually demanding exercise, and one that must command your full attention. It’s a great way of forgetting about schoolwork for a while, at the same time as still making use of (and developing) different areas of your brain.

"Socially, children who become involved in a musical group or ensemble learn important life skills, such as how to relate to others, how to work as a team and appreciate the rewards that come from working together, and the development of leadership skills and discipline," says Maestro Eduardo Marturet, who also oversees the MISO Young Artist program in South Florida.

The Rhenish Orchestra consists of many musicians - from woodwind players, string, brass, and percussion instruments. Auditions are held in the beginning of the year and players from different grades in music can audition and do not need to take music as a subject to be part of the orchestra.
