Welcome to String Orchestra West

Dear String Orchestra West Musicians and Families,

Welcome to the 2024-25 MYSO Season! I am excited that you’ll be part of String Orchestra West, which was my first MYSO experience when I was a young musician.

I have been teaching for over 27 years and will share with you many different kinds of music and new string techniques, all while we develop our own orchestra family.

Thank you for making MYSO part of your learning experience and allowing me to be part of your music education journey. Remember that your music shared with others is a gift that makes a difference in not only your life but those you share it with.

Have a wonderful summer!

Mrs. Mary Pat Michels

String Orchestra West Music Director
