Fraser Valley Symphony is seeking experienced musicians

Spaces available in flute, clarinet, violin, viola and double bass sections

The Fraser Valley Symphony is currently seeking musicians for its flute/clarinet/violin/ viola/double bass sections.

Interested musicians must be able to commit to Monday evening rehearsals from September to early June and should have a high level of proficiency on their instrument.

For more information, please call music director, Lindsay Mellor at 604-526-3045.

The symphony was founded in 1984, and is the premier community orchestra of the Fraser Valley region.

Performing alongside world-class instrumental and vocal soloists, the Fraser Valley Symphony provides a forum for musicians to present a variety of orchestral music for the enjoyment of audiences in the Fraser Valley.

For those who prefer to listen than to play, the FVS’s next concert will take place on Sunday, Feb. 1, with a performance of music by Beethoven and Schubert, featuring Sara Davis Buechner on piano performing Beethoven’s dramatic Concerto in C minor.

The rest of the program includes Ruins of Athens Overture, also by Beethoven, and Schubert’s Symphony No. 6.

All Fraser Valley Symphony concerts are held at Matsqui Centennial Auditorium, 23215 South Fraser Way in Abbotsford. Doors open at 2:30 p.m.

Concerts begin at 3 p.m. Festival seating is in effect. Parking is available off South Fraser Way and Trethewey Street.
