The New Bern Civic Strings (NBCS) is a group of classically-trained string players in the New Bern, N.C. area who enjoy playing together in an organized group. It is also our mission to provide an opportunity for advancing string students to grow and develop as musicians by playing with others. Members include adults and students of all ages. All competent string players are welcome -- no auditions necessary, but we ask that new players be able to play a two-octave scale in tune and have some ensemble experience.
