Music for All Ages
The string orchestra program for Florence City
Schools is a complete program from beginning through advanced-level
classes. Students have the opportunity to learn to play a stringed
instrument (violin, viola, 'cello, or double bass) beginning in the 6th
grade at Hibbett Middle School. They can continue their studies on
through to Florence High School.

orchestra is experiencing tremendous growth. It is an exciting time in
