Crescendo Program Highlights
Beginning in the 2024-2025 season, Crescendo will be open to wind players as well as string players. We will welcome woodwind and brass players to small groups of 4-5 musicians, each on his/her own part, with a coach. Some groups may be a mix of string and wind players.
Two or three times a year, Crescendo players present dedicated recital-style concerts featuring the music they have prepared with their coaches. Musicians participating during prior seasons have performed in concert halls and in the community, including at Williamsburg Middle School auditorium, Kenmore Middle School Black Box Theater, The Jefferson Senior Living Community, Sunrise Senior Living Communities, and the Lubber Run Amphitheater, the latter on stage with the Arlington Philharmonic.
Crescendo musicians receive Instruction in chamber music techniques including ensemble leadership, sound development, ensemble identity, style analysis, performance techniques, music selection, and a refined sense of peer collaboration and communication. Rehearsals are held once a week on Monday evenings from September-May.
The Annual Membership Fee for the 2024-2025 season is $825. Membership includes weekly coaching by professional musicians and at least two performances per year.
