WYSO holds annual open rehearsal for prospective members

On Saturday, October 19, 2013, music students, families, and teachers are invited to come and see what WYSO has to offer at the Fall Open Rehearsal.

The event will begin at 10:00am with a meet and greet featuring breakfast snacks in the Strelow Lounge of the UW Humanities building. Guests will be able to talk with WYSO staff and parents of current members, and will get a chance to tour WYSO’s four orchestras in rehearsal. Visitors will also get a chance to learn more about WYSO’s new programs, including the Endangered Instrument Workshop Series.  After the tour, guests will have an opportunity to speak with current WYSO members in a Q & A session.

Since 1966, WYSO has been enriching lives by providing transformational musical experiences and opportunities for more than 5000 young people in southern Wisconsin. WYSO includes three full orchestras and a string orchestra, a chamber music program, a harp program, a percussion ensemble, and a brass choir program. The orchestras rehearse on Saturday mornings during the academic year, perform three to four public concerts per season, and tour regionally, nationally and internationally. The Youth Orchestra toured Prague, Vienna and Budapest in July 2012 and has toured to Canada, Japan, Scotland, Spain, France, Colorado, Iowa, and Washington, D.C. in the past.

The UW Humanities Building, is located at 455 N. Park Street, Madison. Contact Jonathan Schroerlucke, WYSO Communications & Membership Coordinator 608-265-5701 for more information or to RSVP.
