Call to Artists

Call to Artists August 2014






An opportunity to practice and perform with a full orchestra here in Bend will soon become a reality.  Brass, woodwinds, percussion and strings will comprise the orchestra.  All levels of ability are encouraged to join.  If you haven't played an instrument in awhile or are looking for a new opportunity to play with other musicians, you're invited to join.  All are welcome.  Auditions are not required.  The Orchestra season will convene from September to June.  A monthly membership fee will be charged to cover expenses for conductor, rehearsal space and music. The rehearsals will be held weekly, with 2-3 performances a year.  A meeting location and time of rehearsals are soon to be announced. A conductor has been chosen to lead the orchestra.


The organizing committee for the orchestra came about by newcomers to Bend teaming up with long-term resident musicians who shared the strong desire for a community orchestra experience for non-professional musicians.
