MONDAYS 8-10PM -or- SUNDAY 7-9PM
(Seat Capacity: 50)
There's nothing quite like the sound of a symphony orchestra. You're bound to fall in love right away! Here we play some of the greatest works from Hollywood, Disney, and Broadway. Started in 2009, the VPOPS Symphony has performed in some of the best theatres in town like the Chan Centre, Michael J. Fox Theatre, and the Orpheum. They have also made their debut at Carnegie Hall NYC in June 2015. If you love music, pick up your instrument and join today!
We offer two rehearsal times to give members flexibility to attend either, or both nights of rehearsals. It also allows members periods to book travel plans without forfeiting commitment to the orchestra. Because Sunday sessions only start mid term, those who register for the Sunday session are required to attend Monday sessions as well in order to complete the same number of rehearsal hours.
Please note that the last 3 Monday sessions of each term will be extended to run from 7-10pm for combined rehearsals. There are no extra costs to attend both rehearsals. Principal seats and solo parts will be selected by audition.
"As a formally trained and schooled musician, I was looking for a good, solid community orchestra to join that would help me keep up my skills, challenge me to better in my own playing, and the type of ensemble to which I could significantly contribute, and help me grow in the community. Just from playing in the group for one concert so far, I can see how dedicated the members are to the music and to each other as a whole! The director, Tom, is very encouraging and friendly, but still driven in his vision. I like to have high expectations to live up to and I have found this group to be exactly what I needed to be a part of."
