Three seasons a year

  • Summer 2020: This year will be an on-line session beginning July 9, with opportunities to play together outside as weather allows. Summer sessions are informal and friendly (of course!). Learn more and sign up here.
  • Fall 2020: September 10 – November 19 (free concert). Ten weekly rehearsals plus a concert
  • Concerts: Following conclusion of fall and spring seasons. No admission tickets. Donations only. Refreshments following.

Rehearsal Space

On more normal times, the orchestra members rehearse at the Northampton Senior Center, 67 Conz Street, Northampton (free and ample parking). Summer Sessions are in the same space.

Fall and Spring Season Format

  • Annika Amstutz, director. 
  • One or two rehearsals may be led by a guest each season.
  • Rehearsals begin with the orchestra learning a new tune by ear through playing it slowly for many repetitions. A recording and sheet music are added to the website after the rehearsal.
  • Semester fee discount for early registration
