A new music ensemble as unique as its members.

Who can audition?

Tuition & Scholarships

There is no deposit or payment required to audition.
If you are accepted into the orchestra, you will be contacted with further information about tuition payment. Please allow up to three weeks for a response to your audition submission.

We keep tuition as low as possible to encourage the broadest cross-section of our community to join, but we recognize our fees may be out of reach for some musicians. Scholarships are available for those who require assistance, and we encourage members and supporters to contribute to support and expand this effort.
