Fall 2020 Virtual Ensembles
This fall, we are putting a new twist on the ensemble programming that has been the heart and soul of the GPYO for 60 years.
We have formed two chamber orchestras for mixed strings, winds and brass. These ensembles will gather virtually in Monday evening sectional rehearsals from October 5 through November 23. All rehearsals will be led by Chris Beckett, Teresa Lim and David Rabinowitz, longtime members of our conducting staff.
These sectionals will provide our musicians with the opportunity to learn symphonic repertoire together and receive individualized feedback.
The fall will culminate in compiled performance videos to be released in December 2020.
Our season launches with two meetings for all musicians:
September 14, 6:00 p.m. - Season Orientation
September 21, 6:00 p.m - Technology Workshop (Setting up your "Studio")
We are also introducing two optional programs: a juried Virtual Artists Showcase with prizes awarded to outstanding players… and a small-group Performance Workshop program designed to support all of our musicians as individual performers and as peer-musicians.
