Schedule & Registration

Class/rehearsal is every Thursday night from 7:30 until 10:00 in De Anza's Room A-31. The first rehearsal of Spring Quarter 2015 will be April 9th. If at all possible, please register for the class before showing up. If you've taken Music 31 too many times, you may be able to take Loren Tayerle's section of MUSI 41 which meets concurrenly.

Current members and alumni, If you have "used to play an orchestral instrument" friends who would enjoy our friendly group, get them to dig out their instrument, play a scale, and show up. You can also put up a recruiting poster wherever you work or play.
