Our season runs September through early June, with rehearsals on Wednesday evenings at the Music Center of the Northwest. If you are interested in playing with us, please email membership@raincitysymphony.com. We can generally take strings at any time, but other instruments may be subject to limitations. More Information.

Each quarter, we meet weekly from the first rehearsal to the last concert. We post exceptions and additional information about rehearsals below.
Rehearsals are Wednesdays, 7:30 to 9:30 pm. at Music Center of the Northwest, 901 N 96th St

Sectionals may have a different location or be a different day of the week.
