A Sit-In Adventure: Ever wished you could sit in the middle
of an orchestra? Let's do it! Continuing a tradition started several
years ago, we invite students to sit in with the orchestra for dress
rehearsal. Dress rehearsal starts at 9:30 a.m., the Saturday
before the Sunday concert. Dress rehearsal and concert are at Sheslow
Auditorium at Drake University. Students may sit on stage in their
chosen instrumental section. Parents, your children will love it!. We
orchestra members love it! Just show up and we will find students a
place to sit. If sitting in the audience seats is preferred, that's fine
too. Come and sit with us!
