Fall Fees: $90 for each CMO project, $150 if you do both. Suncoast Viols are free, with a small drop-in donation for our facility rental.

Note - if you do not own the music for the Messiah or Gloria, there may be a small extra music cost. A few of my viols are also available for rent.


COAST MESSIAH ORCHESTRA
Alternate Mondays, 5:30-7:00 @ Music Makers in Davis Bay
Performing at the Coast Messiah Choir's concerts in December. We'll be preparing the Christmas portion of Messiah as well as the usual Hallelujah Chorus. If time permits, we'll read through other portions for our own pleasure, but please note we're only meeting every other week. Dress rehearsal and 2 concerts are December 17, 20&21.

This ensemble is for upper intermediate/advanced players only because of the short time frame.

COAST MESSIAH ORCHESTRA DOES VIVALDI
Alternate Mondays, 5:30-7:00pm @ Music Makers in Davis Bay until January, then weekly rehearsals until May
Working on Vivaldi's Gloria to perform with Coast Messiah Choir in the Spring.  Performance dates will likely be early May, but that's still TBA. We will begin rehearsing this fall so that we can start getting the parts under our fingers and working on our ensemble sound. Depending on how this goes, we will likely add some other music by Vivaldi to include at the concert!

This ensemble is for anyone interested in taking a deep dive into this glorious music. This ensemble is for YOU!

SUNCOAST VIOLS
Mondays 7:30 - 9:00pm @ Music Makers in Davis Bay
I've always wanted to offer the opportunity to learn viol to my friends and colleagues on the Coast, and here it is! I have 7 instruments currently and two more on the way. I plan to bring them to Music Makers on Monday evenings so people can try out this lovely instrument and we can begin to play consort music together! There are a few experienced players on the Coast, so hopefully we can bolster one other to begin to learn.

This event can be drop in, though committing to several consecutive weeks will help in learning the instrument.
