Wolfgang Expectations of Members

Wolfgang Orchestra and Chorus is self-supporting with seasonal dues of $50.00 per season. Dues cover expenses for rental of the rehearsal hall, insurance, music, equipment, programs, pictures, concert CDs, postage and other incidental expenses of the group. Scholarships are available for college students.

Dues are an expression of commitment on the part of the musicians to rehearse regularly, missing no more than two rehearsals per season. Dress rehearsal and concerts are required for participation in Wolfgang.

Instrumentalists must provide their own music stands. All musicians must provide their own basic black concert attire.

Orchestral music this season may include Wagner's "Die Meistersinger von Nuerenburg: Overture," Adele's "Skyfall" from the 2012 James Bond movie, Mozart's Symphony No. 25 in G Minor," Frankenpohl's "Concertino for Tuba and Strings" and Camille Saint-SaŽns "The Swan" from Carnival of the Animals.

Choral selections may include Holst's "In the Bleak Mid-Winter," "Amen!  Tell It on the Mountain" arranged by Mary McDonald and "Deck the Hall With Haydn" arranged by Greg Gilpin.

The Orchestra and Chorus may join for "Christmas Tidings" by Mark Hayes, Leontovich's "Carol of the Bells," Clare Grundman's "Three Noels" and "We Need a Little Christmas" arranged by Mark Hayes.

From the Director

Maestro Noon

“As your conductor, it is my hope to bring to you the finest and most challenging music from the master composers. I believe and expect that every member can, and will, rise to the level of performance of which we all may be proud. The Conductor’s mission is to constantly advance the individual player’s skills and the ensemble’s performance capability. I will challenge you to be a professional player, regardless of your age. There are great composers that need to be heard through their music, and heard most intimately in the PLAYING of their music. We will sit side by side with Richard Wagner, W. A. Mozart, Camille Saint-SaŽns, Ludwig von Beethoven and other Masters. We will get to know them well.”

Musically,

Dennis A. Noon
