Rehearsals—What to Expect

Our rehearsals are friendly, no-pressure times to learn more about playing your instrument, what it’s like to play with a group, and experience the joy of making music with others! The first hour of each rehearsal is a sectional, where participants are broken into smaller groups by instrument. Sectional time is used for group instruction/lessons and practice. During the second half of the rehearsal, participants come together and rehearse musical selections as a full group.
