Video: West Seattle Community Orchestras in city spotlight

Several proud members of the West Seattle Community Orchestras e-mailed to share the news that WSCO is featured in a current show on Seattle Channel – and we just got the code for the specific story, so you don’t have to watch the entire program to get to their spotlight. Check it out above (or, here’s a direct link to the entire show). As noted here a few days ago, WSCO’s new season starts next Tuesday – but we just received word of a few changes to the schedule/locations, so if you are a new or returning member, or planning on checking it out for prospective membership, PLEASE click ahead for the new information:

Due to minor construction changes at Chief Sealth International High School, there will be several changes to the start-up weeks for the West Seattle Community Orchestras. We expect these changes to be very short term and we appreciate everyone’s flexibility. Interested in joining the orchestra or haven’t completed your online registration yet? Go to as soon as possible so we can keep you up-to-date. Registration is also available on-site, though online helps us to stay in touch with coming changes. Schedule for the next two weeks is as follows; we are hopeful schedules will revert to regularly planned times by October rehearsals.

The Debut Orchestra will rehearse as originally planned September 20, 5:30PM to 6:45PM in the Chief Sealth High School Choir room, (#206), no changes for this group. The Intermediate Orchestra (Symphonette) on September 20th and 27th will rehearse 7PM to 8:15PM in the Chief Sealth High School Choir room, (#206). The Symphony Orchestra is cancelled for September 20th; will rehearse on September 27th, 7PM-8:45 PM with location to be determined. However, Symphony members may come in to Chief Sealth to register on September 20, though music may not be available until September 27.

    I love this! And they should be proud! It’s such a fantastic program that has grown so much in just a few years! Good work Toni, Mariane, Rob and all the musicians and volunteers!
