New Sinfonia Associate Membership Program!

Sep 24, 2020
We have a very special opportunity we are offering for young musicians!

With our main auditions over and rehearsals beginning, we have felt saddened that we had to turn away so many fine players due to limited space imposed by social distancing restrictions or because they weren't quite ready. As with most youth orchestra programs, due to the current pandemic we are beginning our season online, allowing us to offer a unique opportunity to students who perhaps aren't quite ready to join or we don't have openings for their instrument. We would like to let you know about the program we are running this year only -- students may join our award-winning program (no audition required!) as a SINFONIA ASSOCIATE MEMBER.

For as long as we are online (most likely through December), Associate Members may take advantage of all our Saturday rehearsal activities:

*Participate in our weekly online Zoom rehearsals with our experienced conductors and excellent challenging repertoire
*Join us for online master classes and sectionals with world-renowned musicians from The Philadelphia Orchestra and other professional musicians
*Attend our orchestra educational seminars
*Perform in our fall/early winter video presentation

Sinfonia Associate Members:

Sinfonia Associate Members may participate in one of our orchestras for the duration of our online activities, held on Saturdays:

-PHILADELPHIA SINFONIA PLAYERS: 10:00 am - 12:00 noon - advanced intermediate orchestra (ages 11-18)

-PHILADELPHIA SINFONIA: 3:00 - 5:30 pm - advanced orchestra (ages 14-23)
Students will be charged a fee of $350* which will include all Saturday sessions online through December 2020.
*If Sinfonia moves back to in-person sooner, Associates will receive a pro-rated refund. If we stay online past December, Associated will be billed for additional classes.
*Need-based Scholarships and payment plans are available by application.

We are eager to create ways to include more deserving and talented students at this difficult time and hope you will encourage your students to take advantage of this unique and exciting opportunity.
