The rebirth of the Prince Albert Strings began in 1995. Although it was an adult orchestra the first year, the Youth Orchestra was established the following year. It is open to violin, viola, cello or bass players of any age, who are able to read music. The group performs at various functions in and around the Prince Albert, Saskatchewan Area. Regular rehearsals are scheduled for Thursdays at 6pm in the Optimist Centre (Exhibition Grounds)
