The Bay Area's Adventure-seeking Orchestra

 

EXPERIENCE THE WAY MUSIC GETS MADE

At our open sessions, you get to watch the creative process unfold. Hear the conductor give adjustments, and listen to the sections come together. You’ll be amazed by how awesome an orchestra can sound even if its players are meeting each other for the first time.

Our sessions are free. You can come and go as you please, bring your kids, chat with the musicians, kick back, and enjoy the music. Music sounds better when everyone's having a good time.

IT STARTED WITH A MUSICAL EXPERIMENT


In the Spring of 2013, conductor David Möschler called up a bunch of Bay Area musicians for an experiment — an open music reading session, with Beethoven, Bolero and beer. Over fifty people showed up. They realized immediately that they had created something special: a musical group dedicated to being accessible on every level.

What began as a small collective of friends playing music together has grown into a community that spans the Bay Area. Today, over 1000 local musicians have played in Awesöme Orchestra.
