The Songcatchers Orchestra

The Songcatchers Orchestra began at the 2023 Volunteer Appreciation concert where 6 of our Volunteers, part of an award winning NR High School Orchestra, performed together. Our Executive Director realized that this was a great way to encourage our young volunteers to continue to perform together and started the Songcatchers Orchestra, which is comprised of members mostly of our Volunteer Staff.
The orchestra is lead by our young Early Childhood Violin Coordinator, Ariana Barrios, who is currently enrolled at the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College. Ariana has been a part of Songcatchers since she was 3 years old. Members of the Orchestra varies on their availability.
The Songcatchers Orchestra made their debut performance at the 2023 New Rochelle Street Fair. Since then they have performed at the Songcatchers Afternoon Tea, The Annual Concert for Peace and the Pelham Music Festival. Requirement for joining our orchestra is to be or to become a volunteer at Songcatchers. Please call us at 914-654-1178 for other possible options for joining. View them here.
