Rehearsal Schedule

and other information for members

General information

The orchestra rehearses throughout the year with occasional breaks. The normal rehearsal time is Tuesday 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 Thursday (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.


A memorial service for our late founding director Joel Lish is scheduled for June 29th at 2 p.m. in the sanctuary of the Palisades Lutheran Church.  Here is the flyer for this event.

A number of people have shared their memories of Joel with the Orchestra -- you can read them on this page. If you would like to add to the page, please send your contribution to the orchestra webmaster.
