SEMYO Fall Open House
Area youth musicians with experience on a string, woodwind, brass, or percussion instrument are invited to visit a SEMYO rehearsal on Saturday, September 25. Visitors are encouraged to sit-in and play with a SEMYO orchestra, or parents and students may simply observe. This is a chance to try SEMYO with no cost or obligation and enjoy making music with peers. You may choose which orchestra you would like to try, or we will help choose one that is likely the best fit. Samples of the music are available upon request. Rehearsal times and locations are listed below for each orchestra. For questions please contact Corey Henke via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Bravura Strings – Beginning string orchestra for students who play violin, viola, cello, or bass with 1-2 years of experience. Rehearsals are from 10-11:30 a.m. at Kellogg Middle School.
