Musicians, especially violinists and other strings, are invited to join the Bay Area Rainbow Symphony (BARS) for an open reading rehearsal on Wednesday January 20 at SF State at our regular 7:30 – 10:00 p.m. time and place 1600 Holloway Ave, Creative Arts Building Room 153, San Francisco State University. BARS members, and any interested string players, will play through Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet, Jennifer Higdon’s Dooryard Bloom (based on poem by Walt Whitman), and Dvorak’s Symphony No. 7, depending on what we have time for. There is no obligation to join the group — you are welcome to come play to see how BARS and you may fit together.
Trumpet, violin at the intermediate and advanced intermediate level and percussion players are especially encouraged to join us (though the wind sections are generally full, please still email recruitment [at] bars-sf [dot] org or fill in this form if you’re interested in joining). You will have the opportunity to practice sight reading, to reconnect with old friends, to make new friends, and to find out more about playing with BARS. Please RSVP if you plan to come by filling in this form.
Future events this season include two special event performances at Davies Symphony Hall with the SF Gay Men’s Chorus, and two regular concerts in March and June. We will update our season schedule before we meet on the 20th with planned rehearsal and concert dates.
