Musica Dolce Youth String Ensembles

Musica Dolce Youth String Ensembles (MDYSE) was established in 1995 as an offspring of Musica Dolce. With the guidance of Kathleen Curran Monroe, a private string instructor with extensive backgrounds in both music performance and music education, Musica Dolce Youth String Ensemble took wing. The original group was comprised of seventeen musicians: ten first violins, four second violins, two violas and one cello. The group grew to consist of nearly sixty local string musicians, ages 7 to 18, from a diverse geographic area, from Wakefield, Rhode Island to Deep River, Connecticut. Because of the age incongruity and the variable proficiency level of participating musicians, the Youth String Ensemble was divided into several ensembles. Each group would allow musicians with similar musical competencies to perform with others of comparable skill levels. Since 2013, the program's rehearsal location has been in Wakefield, RI. 

2018 -- 2019 String Orchestra

In the Fall of 2017, we moved to a full string orchestra, geared for beginning/intermediate and intermediate youth string players.

Join us on Saturday mornings, 10--11:30am, at the South Kingstown Recreation Center, to come together for a fun and interactive string orchestra experience!  We aim to provide an exciting, supportive, challenging, and social ensemble environment for budding musicians. The program is led by the experienced and acclaimed strings teacher Rozanne Fuller.  For more information, contact Rozanne at
