The Juneau Student Symphony will hold its first rehearsal of the season from 6-8 p.m. Monday, Jan. 10, in the JDHS band room. At the rehearsal, which is free and open to all, the student symphony will review their winter repertoire, which includes Brahms’ “Academic Festival Overture,” as well as “The Life of the Child,” a piece written for the student orchestra with parts for very young violinists and recorder players. The rehearsal will conclude with a “stumble-through” of the recently orchestrated violin concerto by Seitz, which will feature Youth Concerto Competition winner, Solomon Unziker, on the violin solo.
Any musician between 8 and 80 is welcome, whether they have played with the group before or not.
Rehearsals for the March 12, 13 and 14 concerts officially begin the following week; this rehearsal will serve as a head start for returning musicians. All new members must schedule an audition with the conductor before the Jan. 17 rehearsal. Audition information, as well rehearsal and concert information, is available online at www.juneausymphony.org/studentsymphony/.
