Is there a minimum standard required to play in the MMO?
There is no minimum standard but all new members are required to attend a short audition. This is to help us choose appropriate repertoire and to allocate seating within the orchestra. More information on auditions can be found here.
How often does the orchestra rehearse?
We understand how busy medical students are, and we aim to make MMO a fun and manageable commitment. The orchestra usually rehearses weekly Thursdays from 6:30pm to 9pm, with roughly 10 rehearsals per semester.
Is there a cost involved in joining the orchestra?
Membership for students is $20 for one semester or $35 for two. Your membership amount contributes to the purchasing and hiring of music, instruments and performance venues.
