40 strings today plus 1 harp
The photo shows cello and bass section with a 'new' member. (12 strings) We have photos of violins 1, violins 2 and violas with the same 'new' member. The advantage of sectionals is that close scrutiny and, more importantly, support, technical hints and encouragement can be given to just a few players at a time. Shona is so versatile with her violin that she can play any of our music, whatever the clef (there are 3 or 4 clefs)! Unfortunately, she can't bring her harp, but, being a harpist, she is able to help our harpist as well.
