Open Rehearsal

Read Mahler, Ravel, Respighi with Us

Our season starts the day after Labor Day with an open rehearsal. Any orchestral musician is welcome to sit in with our regular musicians and read the October concert program.

Get to know us, and let us get to know you! If we have vacancies -- and we do for violins, violas, doublebasses, and percussion, you can arrange to audition or to be on our sub list. Don't resist this chance to read through Mahler's Symphony No. 1!

September Benefit Concert

HMS Pinafore by Gilbert & Sullivan

Sunday September 20, 2015 3pm

Do you have an unexplained desire to call your neighbor “Little Buttercup”? Or a burning need to brand someone, anyone, as an “audacious tar”? Have you always wished to sail the ocean blue, or at least sing about it? Now’s your chance!

On the deck of the HMS Pinafore

Lead singers from Opera51 invite you to join them for a concert performance of Gilbert & Sullivan’s H.M.S. Pinafore. Alan Yost conducts, and you, the audience, are the chorus. Fulfill your dream of being a lass or a sailor! Bring a score if you have one, and sing or listen, at your pleasure. Add to the fun with your own costume!

Download the choral score (55 pages) - print it or put it on your tablet

Robin Farnsley as Josephine, Cindy Vredeveld as Buttercup, Michael Pritchard as Dick Deadeye, Ken Martin as Captain Corcoran, Brad Amidon as Sir Joseph Porter
