I'm in an orchestra at school and we never collaborate with the band kids because my orchestra teacher... well... we'll leave it at that. ;) Anyway, I love the St. Paul's Suite (Holst), Elgar's Serenade for String Orchestra, and the Holberg Suite (Grieg), but who plays them? I really want to see them performed by a professional orchestra, but how? These works are so charming and I would hate for them to be overlooked (even if they are "lighter").
Also, what are some other good pieces for just strings?
