Rehearsal Schedule

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 (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. 

Current schedule
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:

  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.
