The Microsoft Orchestra
The Microsoft Orchestra is an all volunteer classical symphony orchestra which plays around Microsoft and at other locations in the Eastside community approximately three times a year.
The Orchestra is open to all Microsoft Employees, Spouses, Contractors and friends and family. In other words - anyone may play, whether or not you have a direct association with Microsoft.
Our season generally runs from the second Monday after Labor Day through the end of June. Rehearsals take place Monday evenings from 7:00 - 9:00pm in the cafeteria of Building 34 on the Microsoft Campus. (Map)
It's worth mentioning that if you're feeling rusty because you haven't played your instrument in several years, then you are just like almost everybody else in our group. We've all had to brush the rust off, and none of us are career musicians. You'll be among friends.
New members are always welcome, although at times certain instruments may not be needed. No auditions are required - really! Feel free to drop by a rehearsal at any time to listen in. Please bring your own music stand.
We really need:
- String players at any level are always welcome and are very much needed
