Passionate about music, but looking for a little more creativity than what a traditional symphony might provide? Join the Sonoma Alternative Symphony! Over the course of 8 weeks, you and the ensemble will explore a variety of musical genres, including modern classical, pop, and alternative music. You’ll even work on co-developing your own compositions as a group!

SASY is open to musicians ages 18 and over who have a few years of experience under their belt. A short audition is required for admission. Applicants should prepare three different scales spanning 2 octaves and one short song. They will also be asked to demonstrate some sight reading at the audition.

Please contact A. Butterfly Fiddle-Hooper to arrange for an audition by email or phone at (530) 921-6671.

Materials:  Please bring your own instrument.
