Get to Know Us
Veronica Jackson has been leading the orchestra for the past two years and is eager to join us for a third. Her energetic style inspires the musicians to achieve their very best as well as makes a fun and inviting atmosphere.
We're a diverse group of people from all walks of life. We have students, engineers, teachers, nurses; beginners, rusty musicians, seasoned veterans; all of in various places in life. But we all share in one passion: making wonderful music together. If you share the same passion, we invite you to join us!
We play pieces across all genres and time periods. Wolfgang Mozart and John Williams are equally represented in many concerts and events throughout the year. Music lovers of all taste will enjoy the orchestral repertoire.
During the Fall, Winter, and Spring, the orchestra meets on Mondays from 7-8:30 PM at Kenmore Middle School in Arlington, VA. We take a hiatus during the summer months.
