We are looking for experienced musicians for the following sections:
Strings (All), Trombone, French Horn,
Harp, Percussion, Choir
Although experience and an audition are required to join the orchestra, perfection definitely is not. We have many players who joined after being away from their instrument for 20 to 30 years. It's a great way to rekindle your love of singing or playing in a supportive, friendly environment. And it's FREE.
The American West Symphony and Chorus is proud to present two virtual concert movies in the "Sounds of Hope" concert series. They are now available to view on our new VIRTUAL CONCERTS page! We hope you enjoy it! The AWSC mission is to bring you quality music, and when indoor concerts became unsafe, our dedicated musicians started to focus on digital performances. Our "Sounds of Hope" video concert series is the result of our efforts during the pandemic. We invite you to check out our other videos on our VIDEOS page to listen to past performances.
This summer our musicians look forward to bringing you live music again. We loved the informal outdoor concerts we did last summer and we are excited to play for you again. Please visit our Upcoming Concerts Page to learn about our end of Summer Pops concert.
Our future events, which depend on the pandemic safety guidelines, will be announced on our website, Facebook, and email list. Our primary focus is on protecting our patrons, the AWSC musicians, choir, and staff. Thank you for your understanding. We are hopeful we can announce more exciting events in the near future.
It is a privilege for our organization to serve the community, and we look forward to sharing live music with you soon. During difficult times like these we need music and beauty in our lives more than ever. As Victor Hugo says,
"Music expresses that which cannot be put into words,and that which cannot remain silent".
