Sit-In Adventure: Ever wished you could sit in the middle of an
orchestra? Let's do it! Continuing a tradition started several years
ago, we invite students to sit in with the orchestra for dress rehearsal.
Dress rehearsal is normally the Saturday before each
Sunday concert. Check the individual concert details for specific
information. Students may sit on stage in their chosen instrumental
section. Parents, your children will love it!. We orchestra members love it! Just
show up and we will find students a place to sit. If sitting in the audience
seats is preferred, that's fine too. Come and sit with us! (Questions?
Contact conductor, Carl Johnson, at email@example.com.)

Who Are We? Under the baton of Music
Director and Conductor, Carl Johnson, the Des Moines Community
Orchestra is composed mainly of non-professional musicians whose
love of music keeps them coming together to perform the great symphonic
works of the masters, as well as new works by living composers.
In addition to a love of classical music, the orchestra is deeply
committed to making classical music concerts accessible to everyone,
regardless of financial resources. Musician members pay dues in order to
keep admission free to the public!
Also, so that financial obstacles won't prevent a musician from becoming a member of
the orchestra, fellowships are available to underwrite the dues obligation.
