The Mountain Laurel Ensemble is a chamber orchestra and chamber music program for intermediate and advanced high school musicians from New Paltz and the greater Mid-Hudson Valley. The ensemble’s goal is to offer high quality music education and performance opportunities to our members. We meet weekly, on Tuesday evenings at the Mountain Laurel Waldorf School in New Paltz. Performances are scheduled throughout the year. In addition to weekly orchestra rehearsal, coached sectionals are scheduled several times during the semester for in-depth practice. The directors, Mark Bernstein, Conductor and guitarist and Marka Young, violinist, violist and chamber musician, are both professional, performing musicians who have decades of experience in music education.
The Mountain Laurel Ensemble performs classical and modern works for small orchestra and chamber group, in an intimate setting. They offer individual instruction for each of their talented and passionate musicians! Membership is open by invitation.
