We are always growing our ensembles and encourage every young musician who enjoys their instrument and is looking to expand their involvement in the arts to consider our program. Additional opportunities for members include workshops, ‘side by side’ community performance opportunities with professional musicians and much more. We have a great time!
We offer dedicated audition dates twice a year, along with Bring-a-Friend nights. Make sure to check our Events page often for our updated Concerts.

All new students grades 4-12 who have at least 3 years of experience playing an orchestral instrument.

Which Orchestra is Right for You?
Sinfonia is for intermediate students grades 4 and up who play strings only.
Philharmonic is for older advanced students who play orchestral instruments.
*While some students may intend for their audition to be specifically for the Philharmonic, that determination is made solely by the conductors.
All auditioning students will be asked to perform:
Solo of the student's choosing
