Celebrating over 40 Years of Bringing Great Classical Music to the Upper West Side
Welcome to our concerts and our community.
Since 1971, the talented musicians of the Riverside Orchestra have delighted thousands of classical music lovers through our regular Upper West Side concerts. We are a community of players who love music, a love shared by our loyal audience. We are proud to have served as the training grounds for so many emerging conductors and honored by our collaborations with amazing soloists, often members of the New York Philharmonic and other great orchestras.
Announcing our June Concert
Friday, June 10, 2016
St. Paul & St. Andrew
263 W 86th St (at West End Avenue), 7:30pm
Opening with the overture to Cimarosa's The Secret Marriage, we welcome the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra's orchestra's Ray Riccomini in Haydn's sterling Trumpet Concerto, and, joined by Karen Birch Blundell, they play Copland's Quiet City for Trumpet, English Horn and strings. The orchestra's season finale ends with Schubert's tremendously energetic Symphony No. 3 in D Major.
All tickets are $20 and available at the door.
As always, children are admitted free!
We are always looking for talented new musicians.
Please contact us email@example.com for more information about how to join the orchestra for a concert, a season, or more! String players are almost always needed and other availability of other positions varies.
Tell us a little about yourself - your experience with other orchestras, interests, level of playing ability - whatever you think will be helpful. We do not have a formal auditioning process but we do expect players to maintain a high level of playing ability -- and to practice!
