About This Activity

Description

This course is closed to further registration.

The SFCM Community Guitar Orchestra provides Bay Area guitarists an opportunity to become members of a community of musicians performing large ensemble works in a wide range of musical styles from the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Modern periods. Under the direction of Scott Cmiel, the Guitar Orchestra prepares for a public performance at the end of each semester.

Each member will be assigned one of four parts and play together in a section with others playing the same part. We want players of all levels to be able to participate so while some members will play difficult music others will have their parts adjusted so they can play beautifully and with an expressive interpretation. Everyone is asked to learn their part before each meeting so during rehearsal we can work on the interpretation of each piece.

There is no need to be a virtuoso - good tone, good memory, and enthusiastic attitude are all that's required.

If you have any questions about the orchestra please contact Scott Cmiel at scott.cmiel@sfcm.edu
