We are looking forward to getting to know you!
All members of the general public are welcome to play in the GWSO. No orchestral experience is necessary, and membership is free.
Our current ensemble includes amateur musicians of all ages, from retirees to talented high school students, and numerous students from Wheaton College. Wheaton's string faculty play in the GWSO and provide valuable coaching and instruction during rehearsals.
We pride ourselves on maintaining a friendly, supportive environment in rehearsals.
All string, woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments are welcome.
Rehearsals are held Monday evenings at 7 pm in Watson Hall on the campus of Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts (25 minutes from Providence, 40 minutes from Boston) from September to early December, and then February to early May. We perform two concerts each year.
Auditions are held in early September and mid-January.
