and other information for members
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 (usually 1:00 p.m.). Rehearsals take place in the Luther Hall (fellowship building) of the Palisades Lutheran Church; directions here.
Always make sure that the Orchestra Secretary, Denisa Hanna (click here to email) has your email address so you will be notified of any last-minute changes.
We are rehearsing for an August 21 performance of music from opera; program is here. Future concerts planned: October 30, with the Brahms First Symphony, and December 11, Handel's Messiah with our affiliated chorus.
Orchestra policy for rehearsal attendance, from Denisa:
Cookies will be consumed outside, NO EXCEPTIONS!! I will be
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.
