The Waltham Symphony Orchestra is a full-complement symphony orchestra, comprised of seasoned professional, semi-professionals, amateur and apprenticeship musicians from the Waltham area and surrounding communities. All musicians are admitted to the orchestra via audition. Orchestra members are involved in the audition process and musicians are admitted not only on the basis of their musicianship but also of their ability to integrate into a very tight group.
As the orchestra begins to rehearse together only two weeks prior to each concert, it is essential that the musicians be dedicated to self-study and preparation due to the short and intense rehearsal schedule.
One of the goals of the orchestra is to foster an ambiance of camaraderie while at the same time perfecting the art of orchestral playing. To this end, rotating seats within their section is offered at the discretion of the music director and the section leader.
The musicians of the Waltham Symphony also form chamber music groups to perform in formal settings such as chamber concert and private functions as well as for charity fund-raisers.
