Rehearsal Schedule

and other information for members

General information

The orchestra rehearses throughout the year with occasional breaks. The normal rehearsal time is Thursday evenings at 7:30. Concerts are held on Sunday evenings, and there are extra rehearsals during the week of the concert: one on the preceding Tuesday (7:30 p.m.) and one on Saturday afternoon (1:00 p.m.).  Most but not all rehearsals take place in the Luther Hall (fellowship building) of the Palisades Lutheran Church; directions here.

Always make sure that the Orchestra President, Denisa Hanna (click here to email) has your email address so you will be notified of any last-minute changes. 


Current schedule
We are currently rehearsing for a December 4 performance of Handel's Messiah with our affiliated chorus, the Brentwood-Palisades Chorale. The conducting will be shared by Joel Lish (Overture, Hallelujah Chorus) and choral director Susan Rosenstein.

Rehearsals will continue without interruption afterwards, looking ahead to our concert on February 5.

Orchestra policy for rehearsal attendance, from Denisa:

  1.  Everyone must wear masks, I will have some on hand if no anyone doesn’t have one.

2.  Cookies will be consumed outside, NO EXCEPTIONS!!  I will be monitoring this!

3.  Winds will be further back during rehearsals, we can’t have them wear masks to play!  This is the rule with quite a few orchestras now, and seems to be working for them, plus, if everyone else is masked, there shouldn’t be too much of a problem.


Sun. 12/4/22, Call 7:00, Concert 7:30. Concert dress, per Denisa: "Dress is “pit black” please NO white shirts or, ties just black for everyone.  If the men want to wear a black jacket, it is okay, but that church gets pretty warm when all the bodies are in there." Sanctuary, Methodist Church
