Conducted by Miki Hatcher

Rehearsals are one Wednesday a month from 7-9 pm. (see outreach dates on main schedule)  36 Chatham Road. Summit, NJ.

Ensemble requirements
String players should be comfortable playing on all four strings in first position. Some pieces include third position.  Rhythmic complexity includes 16th notes.  

Flute, oboes, and bassoons should be at an intermediate level and demonstrate some ability to blend with strings.

All new members should attend at least 2 consecutive rehearsals before participating in a performance.  

The set list (located in the box below- to the right) will be updated periodically. These are the pieces that will be rehearsed in rehearsal.  The music can be found in the outreach music files. Outreach has many pieces in rotation but not all are rehearsed at the same time. 

To help new outreach members prepare for rehearsals, Miki has selected the following level 1 setlist. New members should focus on these pieces first. It's very typical for new outreach members to sit some songs out until they have had time to learn the pieces.

Level 1 Setlist

Saturday at the Symphony 
Over the Rainbow
Te Deum 
Theme from Canon in D 
Orpheus in the Underworld 
William Tell Overture 
Simple Gifts
