Contact Morrie Brand for more information.

Auditions: 

Please contact Ramona [email protected] to schedule an audition time.

The Philharmonia gives students their first experience playing in a large ensemble that includes strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion. The young students learn to follow a conductor and have the chance to perform with other musicians in a friendly group setting.

String students should be comfortable in first and third positions, have a solid knowledge of note values, dynamics, key signatures, and be able to play major scales up to 3 sharps and flats. Members should be taking private lessons. Winds and brass are encouraged to audition. For strings, an audition is optional, but doing so allows for better chair placement. At a minimum, we need a recommendation from the student’s private teacher or band director. String students need to be in the equivalent of Suzuki books III-IV.
