Will Rogers Learning Community
The Santa Monica Symphony is committed to promoting the enjoyment of music throughout our community. To encourage more participation, the Symphony offers special “Chair to Chair” evenings for elementary school students and their families. Students have the opportunity to spend time with musicians before the rehearsal begins and get a feel for instruments, literally. Musicians share their instruments, their stories and answer many questions in this up close and personal experience.
After the “show and tell” portion, students are invited to choose a musician to sit next to during rehearsal. This “chair to chair” experience is quite remarkable for students and musicians alike.
The upcoming “Chair-to-Chair” open rehearsal will be held on Wednesday, May 11 in the Cafetorium at Will Rogers Learning Community (2401 14th St, Santa Monica, CA 90405). The open rehearsal program starts at 7:00pm. Interested participants are encouraged to arrive early while musicians warm up and ask for Mr Guido Lamell, our Music Director for more details on the spot.
