Summer Sessions 2016

Thank you so much for your interest in our summer sessions.  Unlike many local community bands/ensembles in the metro area, Second Chances continues to run rehearsals and has performances during the summer months.

The objectives of our Summer Sessions include:

  • offering the chance for members of many different local community bands and orchestras to come together during the summer and perform music together
  • offering the chance to rehearse and perform without having to commit to or pay for a rigid four-month rehearsal schedule during a time of the year when many are planning vacations
  • offering an opportunity to ‘keep your chops up’ during the summer down time
  • offering a number of informal and fun outdoor performance opportunities for players

There is also no set fee for the four month Summer Session period.   Instead, participants are simply asked to bring $10 with them to each rehearsal they are able to attend.  This helps us cover the cost of our summer rent, insurance, music, performances and conductors fees.
