The second rehearsal of the spring semester, February 6, is open to any player who would like to experience the group - for free! Current members of Symphonette are encouraged to invite a friend that day, but anyone is welcome to attend this rehearsal. There’s no fee and no obligation. We hope you’ll come back the following week to register for the semester. Participants in Bring-a-Friend Day are encouraged to bring their instrument.
