This is an amateur community group, that sings a variety of music types--popular, classical, folk, sacred, Broadway. We take adult voices; high school students are welcome. The orchestra rehearses on Thursday nights, 7:30 pm to 9 pm. Please show up a bit early to warm up; we will start playing at 7:30.

Additional Information

Annual dues are $35 for adults, $15 for students, and help fund our new music and costs to hold concerts.  Dues are required in order to bring music home with you.

Keep the orchestra in mind as you make your way around Connecticut, particularly if you are involved in musical activities.  We are particularly in need of string players, French Horn players, percussionists, and a bassoonist. All others are, of course, always welcome.
