2018 - 2019 Season
The Saline Symphony Orchestra, now entering its 5th season, traditionally performs twice a year; once during the holiday season, and once in the spring, with other ensemble opportunities as they arise.
We will perform a holiday concert on Saturday, December 1, 2018, at 7 pm and a spring concert on Saturday, April 27, 2019, at 7 pm. Locations will be announced at a later date.
Rehearsal dates are tentative. We rehearse on Sunday afternoons, alternating Sundays (except when working around holidays/breaks) from 3 to 5 pm.
Dress Rehearsal: November 30th 6-8pm
Concert: December 1st 7:00pm
Dress Rehearsal: April 26 6-8pm
Concert: April 27 7:00pm
**Back to back Sundays so as to avoid Easter on the 21st.
Interested in Joining the Orchestra?
The Saline Symphony Orchestra has been growing by leaps and bounds! The 2017-2018 Season saw the orchestra grow to over 50 area musicians.
Dimensions Fine Arts, Inc., the 501(c)3 nonprofit that oversees the SSO, has a mission of providing opportunities to area musicians, and the SSO helps fulfill that mission. We currently do not use an audition process; instead, we invite prospective members to join us to sit in on rehearsals and see if we're a good fit. We do expect prospective members to be proficient enough to play the music, and will review as we progress through the season. All rehearsals are held at one of the Bryant School District campus band rooms.
We welcome musicians who are returning to their love of music, regardless of age, as well as those who are music educators; our members represent a wide range of experience, and we believe in nurturing the love of music through a variety of support and methods. We also encourage high school and college musicians to join the orchestra.
We charge an annual fee of $20 per musician; this helps offset our costs of music and other items. Students are provided seats in the orchestra on a scholarship basis.
