Interested in Joining the Orchestra?
The Saline Symphony Orchestra has been growing by leaps and bounds! The first semester of our 2018-19 season saw the orchestra grow to nearly 60 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 and will be announced at the beginning of each semester.
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. T-shirts are available for an additional $15.
