Scruffy City Orchestra is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, pay-to-play organization. Member fees are $50/year.
We have two rehearsal/concert cycles per year. The summer-fall season runs from August through October with two concerts in early-mid November. The winter-spring season runs from January-April with two concerts in May. We do not rehearse in the summer.
Parish Hall (on the campus of The Cathedral of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus), 711 S Northshore Dr, Knoxville, TN
Thursday evenings during active sessions, 7-9 p.m.
Bring your own stand, instrument(s) and any other items you personally need (stand lights, etc.). Music will be provided or ISMLP inks will be e-mailed to members for personal print-out.
Attendance is critical to the success of a community orchestra. Musicians must attend at least 80% of rehearsals to continue as members. Attendance at Thursday dress rehearsal the night before the Friday concert is mandatory. Please make every effort to attend the last two rehearsals in particular. If you cannot meet these requirements and want to continue as a member of the orchestra, speak to the Personnel Manager.
Always let the Personnel Manager know as far in advance as possible if you must miss any rehearsal and inform your section leader as well..
