The Training Orchestra is for beginning students who can read music and are currently studying with a private instructor. Though geared toward young people, Training Orchestra is unique in that parents who play an instrument often join in and contribute to the ensemble. Youth Symphony members are also encouraged to play with and mentor the Training Orchestra students.
Each year Training Orchestra prepares two concerts in fall and spring. There are also a number of optional Community Concerts and outreach performances throughout the season.
Rehearsal: This ensemble will meet Thursday evenings from 4:30-6:00pm. Each session includes a 15-minute break for snacks and social interaction.
