Covid 19 cancellations and postponements: UPDATE 4/1/2020
In keeping with the guidance and orders from state and local governments, and exercising an abundance of caution, in response to the spread of the Covid 19 virus, All Seasons Orchestra will be on hiatus from now until further notice. Our future concert and rehearsal schedule will be resumed only when it is deemed safe and when all restrictions for the State of California are lifted.
Notice of resumption of activities will be posted here.
All ASO musicians and our friends are invited to participate in the All Seasons Orchestra Virtual Orchestra Project. We all deserve some simple fun considering the state of the world and the impact it has had on our usual musical activities. Virtual Choirs and Virtual Orchestras are popping up all over YouTube. Some of you may have had an opportunity to participate already. I have selected a piece of music that I know you will be humming and enjoying as you prepare your part. To participate requires you to learn your part using normal sheet music and a guide video you can play on any smart device. You will have access to full instructions and all the digital resources you will need right here. To record your part, you will need two smart devices and some headphones or earbuds. One device is needed to play the guide video and one to record you playing your part. Join the orchestra to play Leroy Anderson’s Sandpaper Ballet. Click HERE for full instructions and resources.

All Seasons Orchestra is happy to announce it has found a new home venue and has moved to the Eureka Woman’s Club January 2020. We will always be grateful to the City of Arcata, Division of Parks and Recreation for giving us our start and supporting us for over 30 years. Follow us as we grow and improve and share our love of music with the members of the Eureka Woman’s Club whose motto is: “Working toward the betterment of our community through cultural, educational, and social programs.”
