Blue Arch Strings (formerly Baroque & Buskin’ Strings) is a community string orchestra in Calgary, Alberta, started in 1998, by director, Elisa Sereno-Janz.

Making music with others is a fundamental part of the human experience and our string orchestra lives into that belief!  We support a fun, social and noncompetitive atmosphere that has our members returning year after year.

We also accept new members in each term for our string orchestra, and are always looking for enthusiastic string players who love to make music with others.

Blue Arch Strings performs all genres of music from classical and baroque, to folk and contemporary, including new music each term from our resident composer, Tim Janz.

We accept new members in September and January.
