General information

The orchestra rehearses throughout the year with occasional breaks. The normal rehearsal time is Thursday evenings at 7:30. Concerts are held on Sunday evenings, and there are extra rehearsals during the week of the concert, including one on the preceding Tuesday (7:30 p.m.) and Saturday afternoon (1:00 p.m.).  Rehearsal locations vary between three locations, a few blocks apart, in Pacific Palisades.

Always make sure that the Orchestra Secretary, Denisa Hanna (click here to email) has your email address so you will be notified of any last-minute changes.
