SYMPHONIC ORCHESTRA
is the premier orchestra of TCSYO and provides a distinguished orchestral experience designed to motivate and enhance musical talent and cultivate individual growth through the rehearsal and performance of renowned orchestral repertoire. The Symphonic Orchestra separates itself from other youth orchestras in the Washington D.C. area through its unique rehearsal configuration. It alternates weeks of intense sectionals during the first half of the rehearsal, at which time the woodwinds, brass and percussion sections work with TCSYO’s artistic specialists. The string students benefit from these sessions as well working with conductor Mrs. Anne Rupert on ensemble playing techniques, left-hand fluency, and right-hand music making, giving students the opportunity to achieve a high level of musicianship over the shortest period of time. TCSYO’s distinct focus is on student learning and giving our musicians a commanding perception of orchestral ensemble playing. Auditions are required and will be scheduled after a completed registration form has been received.

Director: Mrs. Anne Rupert
Rehearsals: Monday evenings 7-9:30 p.m.
