Awesöme Orchestra brings people together for musical adventures. Their free sessions are part performance, part open rehearsal. They provide the sheet music, and anyone is welcome to play or to listen.

The Awesöme Orchestra Collective is the Bay Area’s most adventurous reading orchestra, dedicated to playing excellent orchestral music of all kinds with amazing musicians in a fun, casual environment focused on high musicianship. Their events are always free, but they ask for a pay-what-you-will donation to help cover basic costs.

Will Winter continue to drag on, or are we getting an early Spring? Come join Awesöme Orchestra for Session 73: Groundhog Day on Sunday, February 2 from 11:00–2:00pm at Sports Basement in Berkeley to find out!

We’ll ask you to channel your inner Bill Murray for Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini featuring Naomi Stine on piano. Next, we’ll dive into a premiere reading of Aeaea, by local composer Holly Mead, and continuing our Awesöme Big Band trend, we’ll also highlight “Venus,” another movement of Jeremy Levy’s arrangement of The Planets by Gustav Holst.

As an extra little surprise for 2020, we’re excited to read our first mystery mirco-arrangement by Brian Adam McCune. What’s that? Well, you’ll have to attend the session to find out!
