Now's the time to join Desert Overture for our 2017-2018 season!
At our concerts, we often encourage people who played a band instrument in high school or college to dust of your old instrument (or find one on eBay or Craigslist or in one of our local music stores) and start playing again. Now, you have an opportunity!
On Thursday, September 7, at 7:00 PM we are hosting an open sight-reading rehearsal. We did this back on June 11 and lots of new people showed up. Everyone had a blast!
We would be happy to have you join us! No cost, no commitment, no pressure. Just an evening of making music together for the joy of it. The fun will take place at First Congregational United Church of Christ, 1407 N. 2nd Street (at Willeta, just south of McDowell), Phoenix, Arizona.
We will start rehearsing music for our holiday concert the following week, September 14.
If you have questions, please contact our Artistic Director Scott Helms.
This beautiful one-of-a-kind hand-crafted table could be yours!
Support Desert Overture and take a chance on winning this handsome, sturdy indoor/outdoor table custom built by board member Travis Johnson. The solid metal frame is treated with a profession-grade coating to withstand rust and damage. The top is made from trex - an artificial wood made from recycled plastic that will not dry out or warp in the Arizona heat. It's virtually indestructible!
Raffle tickets are on sale now through Desert Overture's holiday concert in December. The drawing will take place at the holiday concert. You need not be present to win. Local delivery will be provided. Shipment outside the Phoenix metro area will be the responsibility of the winner.
Tickets are $10 each. Increase your chances! Buy multiple tickets!
