The orchestra is comprised of volunteer
musicians from the community, with additional players from
the surrounding communities who are engaged to supplement
sections when needed.
Auditions for placement within each section will be held
the first rehearsal of each semester. New members will play
a short audition for an independent panel of judges which
may include the section principal. Audition excerpts, scales,
solo/etude, possibly sight reading (usually 7-10 minutes
Regular rehearsals are held every Monday evening from
6:30-9:00 p.m. in Strahan Hall at Muscatine Community College.
Additional rehearsals are scheduled before each concert.
