Mosman Symphony Orchestra rehearses on most Wednesday evenings during school terms. Most rehearsals are held at the Mosman Art Gallery and Community Centre, at the corner of Art Gallery Way and Myahgah Road, Mosman. We meet at 7:15pm for a 7.30pm start and finish at 10:00pm, with a break where hot drinks and chocolate biscuits (and cake) is supplied.* Please remember to bring your own mug.
*Due to COVID 19 restrictions we are unable to provide any refreshments at all. Feel free to bring a thermos!
Please keep an eye on these links, as they will be updated when necessary, and dates possibly changed!

Hi Everyone! Below are parts for our planned September concerts. To be honest, it is not clear if we CAN have a concert with an audience, but for now, we CAN have rehearsals. We will be spreading the orchestra out across the entire hall, maintaining distancing and following all protocols and directions which have been issued.
Please consider the following:
- Respond ASAP to Dan’s availability survey.
- Come a little early to rehearsals as we need set up carefully and spread out.
- There will be no refreshments possible in the break. Please BYO, as you want, but ZERO sharing! (If we ALL bring a pack of TimTams, I’m sure we can do a wide angle photo for social media!)
- Parts are below, with string bowings. Can string leaders please look at their parts and check them. Get back to Andrew if there are serious concerns! They originated from one Daniel Stabrawa and his colleagues so they should make sense, be relatively consistent and playable.
- Please WRITE the bowings on your part when you get them on Wednesday.
As time goes on, it will become clearer if we can perform in the Grand Hall to a live audience. We do have options, such as streaming our performance live, or recording and streaming it. The important thing is we CAN rehearse as an orchestra and at least do part of what we all enjoy, making music together!
