REHEARSAL INFORMATION: The first hour of each rehearsal is spent in sectionals and the second hour we rehearse as an orchestra. Anne Scott leads the cello sectionals and Diane Valentine works with our violinists. We are also regularly joined Rob Penner who coaches our violinists and John Thompson, who coaches our violas.

The coaching sessions provide wonderful support to those who require a little extra help learning orchestral parts or who are inexperienced in an ensemble

COACHES: In addition to Anne and Diane, we often invite guest coaches to join us. Our guest coaches have included John Thompson, Tom Megee, Heather Heron- Mykyte, Sanja Suplevska, Rob Penner, Steve Lubiarz, Shirley Wright, Eileen Kosasih, Mary Jane Vandekerehove, Barbara Smith, Jeff Faragher and Jason Erhardt.

CCSO is a unique and wonderful opportunity for adult students. We strive to create a supportive and positive environment. There are no auditions. Everyone is welcome. For more info click here.

Thank you!

Anne Scott and Diane Valentine
