Even though the full orchestra does not rehearse during the summer, members remain active serving the community of Wayzata. Here are the pre-season highlights from this season, and thank you to all the musicians that donated their time and talents to make this possible!
• Members of the brass section played quintet music for seniors on July 3 at The Boardwalk. Accompanied by root beer floats and a festive audience of seniors and their families, a great time was had by all!
• On August 22, members of the wind and string sections will play as a nonet at a fundraiser for Trillium Woods. We are honored to be a part of this, and most grateful that the WSO is the donor of choice for funds raised that evening. Thank you Trillium Woods!
• James J. Hill Days on September 7 and 8 will be two days packed with music, food and fun for the Wayzata Community. Please join us at the WSO booth, where we’ll have small groups playing, postcards with our season schedule, and lively conversation about the WSO’s upcoming season. See you there!
While we are looking forward to our first concert on October 13, and mountains of preparation goes into planning and preparing for our season well before the orchestra’s first rehearsal on September 22, it continues to be a pleasure to watch members of the orchestra donate their time to the greater Wayzata Community throughout out the summer.
