Saline Symphony Orchestra 2021-2022 Season
The Saline Symphony Orchestra traditionally performs twice a year; once during the holiday season, and once in the spring, with other ensemble opportunities as they arise. Because of CDC restrictions regarding the gathering of large groups and the spreading of Covid-19, the orchestra opted not to have a regular 2020-2021 season for the safety of its patrons and members; the Orchestra met for a special Spring-Summer session.
Regular rehearsals are now starting for the Fall Semester of 2021. Our rehearsal dates are:
* Dress Rehearsal: weekend, December 10-12, TBA
* Performance: weekend, December 10-12, TBA
Interested in Joining the Orchestra?
The Saline Symphony Orchestra has been growing by leaps and bounds! The orchestra currently has up to 60 active members and continues to grow and expand its offerings.
We currently do not use an audition process; instead, we invite prospective members to join us to sit in on rehearsals and see if we're a good fit. We do expect prospective members to be proficient enough to play the music, and will review as we progress through the season. All rehearsals are held at one of the Bryant School District campus band rooms and will be announced at the beginning of each semester.
We welcome musicians who are returning to their love of music, regardless of age, as well as those who are music educators; our members represent a wide range of experience, and we believe in nurturing the love of music through a variety of support and methods. We also encourage high school and college musicians to join the orchestra. Younger musicians (including high school) may also consider Youth Ensemble.
We charge an annual fee per musician, currently $40 per season; this helps offset our costs of music and other items. Students are provided seats in the orchestra on a scholarship basis.
