Welcome to the Strings!

About the Strings

Welcome, stranger, to the Strings section page! We pride ourselves in being the coolest group in the MOB, and the best damn “marching” strings section you’ll find anywhere. For many of us, we all wandered away from the comforting sea of bows in orchestra into the chaos of the MOB, where we endured being blasted from behind by the trumpets and horns. Life’s tough for a MOB string player. However, hardship forges the strongest bonds between us.

Have no clue about any of this “marching” business? Neither did we (and most of us still don’t)! Thankfully, we rarely need to play while moving and only need to form the occasional straight line, with some difficulty. We’ll equip you with all you need, from attachable flip folders for music, to harnesses for cellos. We have instruments you can borrow, if you don’t want to expose your own to the elements, but rain or shine, we always have our infinite stash of specialty kazoos.

Here in the MOB Strings, we rosin hard and we play hard. Individually, though, we’re a group of pretty chill people. This year, we’ve:

  • Danced to Louie Louie during every rehearsal
  • Discussed the merits of the SpongeBob musical during section dinners
  • Explored the mysterious upper floors of the band hall during sectionals
  • Watched the sunrise together at 6 AM
  • And we have a lot more things to do and memories to make.

If you want to try something new, come check us out. We’re always happy to have you.
