Are you a musician looking to get involved with the southern Vermont music scene? The Windham Philharmonic is always looking for new members, particularly string players.
The not-for-profit orchestra depends on local musicians to both perform for the enjoyment of the community and to help raise awareness and funds for other local non-profits. A recent concert raised funds for Groundworks Collaborative, which works with people and systems to create solutions to end hunger and homelessness for all people in the region. In August, orchestra members participated in Rock Against Racism VT, which benefitted the Guy Hawkins Cancer Relief Fund. Members also donate their time and baking skills to help raise funds for the orchestra itself, selling goodies at concerts. Concerts are open to all in the community, with admission by donation of the attendees’ choice.
Musicians of all skill levels are welcome to join the orchestra. Rehearsals are typically held on Monday evening in Brattleboro, and most concerts are also held in the city. To see a list of events held in 2023, please visit the past events page of our online calendar.
If interested in learning more about playing with the orchestra, please fill out the form on the volunteer page and we’ll be in touch. Thank you for your interest!
