Our New Season Begins!

Friday, October 11 at 7:30pm
St. Paul & St. Andrew United Methodist Church
263 W 86th St (at West End Avenue)

The program will open with the deep yet sweet Andante Festivo of Sibelius, followed by guest violin soloist Chelsea Xia, who makes a triumphant return after her 2017 Mendelssohn, in Sibelius' Violin Concerto. Brahms' first symphony echoes the classical forms, with deeply personal and passionate music.

We are always looking for talented new musicians.

Please contact us at riversideorch@gmail.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!
