The Santa Clarita Philharmonic is pleased to announce that we are welcoming new musicians for our 2015-2016 season. This is an exciting opportunity to join an organization with an outstanding track record of bringing quality classical music to the Santa Clarita Valley.
Under music direction of Jeffrey Gilbert, our musicians are your incredibly talented neighbors and fellow community members — everyone from students to music teachers; from working professionals to the retired young-at-heart.
We are seeking instrumentalists in all areas but are in great need of adding more players to our string sections. The ability to read music is required.
Our musicians rehearse Tuesday nights from 7:30-9:30 p.m, at Rio Norte Junior High, 2877 Rio Norte Drive, Santa Clarita, CA 91355.
“We encourage all professional and non-professional musicians to be a part of a wonderful group of dedicated music lovers”, Dr. Mark Elfont, President.
