TACO is a casual and social orchestra that meets monthly. We don’t rehearse for performances, but we may offer occasional performance opportunities, which are always optional for musicians.
There are no auditions, and all levels are welcome!
The word “terrible” is a joke, meant to convey inclusiveness of everyone; sometimes, we’re tragic, other times, we’re terrific!
Musicians of all skill levels from beginners to local music teachers share an afternoon of music-making; more experienced musicians use TACO to practice a second or third instrument; less experienced musicians learn how to play in an ensemble, many for the first time.
Our library of music includes arrangements for full orchestra, from baroque and classical to pop and show tunes.
New music provided every month, which you can practice ahead if you wish or practice your sight-reading skills at the gathering.
To participate in TACO, you must be able to laugh at mistakes.
Musicians bring their instrument, a music stand, their music, an appetizer to share, and lots of good humor!
Sessions are $15 per musician. Guests are free and welcome to sit and observe our process.
