SCMC will require proof of fully-vaccinated status, or a negative COVID test taken within 48 hours, to attend a rehearsal. In areas with substantial and high transmission, the CDC recommends that everyone (including fully vaccinated individuals) wear a mask in public indoor settings to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, especially the Delta variant, and to protect others. To that end, SCMC is also highly recommending that all participants wear a mask while in the building. You will need to bring ID and proof of vaccination to your first rehearsal.
Grand Band encourages musicians of various skill levels to explore their musical talents and experience the joy of making music. The ensemble performs music in a variety of genres, including classical, Broadway and pop.
Cullen McCarthy, Conductor
Rehearsals: Tuesdays, 5:30–6:45pm
GRAND STRING ORCHESTRA
Grand String Orchestra welcomes violin, viola, cello and double bass players from near-beginner to intermediate level. The emphasis is on having fun and learning classical and popular music together in an informal and non-competitive atmosphere. While the group will focus on ensemble skills and on developing general musical and string skills in an ensemble setting, it is also an opportunity to meet other string players and make great music together.
Cyndi Betts, Conductor
Rehearsals: Wednesdays, 5:15-6:45 pm
Auditions are not required for SCMC’s adult ensembles.
