The New Westchester Symphony Orchestra (NewWSO) is an amateur, audition-free orchestra rehearsing weekly on Wednesdays in White Plains. Rehearsals are open to players of all abilities, whether they haven't played in 50 years or have played their whole lives.
The purpose of NewWSO rehearsals is to have fun playing music together, plain and simple. It is a supportive, non-competitive environment in which aspiring musicians can play great works of classical music together.
Conductor Benjamin Niemczyk states, "The NewWSO is perfect for anyone who played until high school or college but put their instrument away for years, maybe even decades, to pursue career or family. Great classical music can and should be played by everyone, not just by professional musicians or even very proficient amateurs who have passed rigorous auditions. Our public performances showcase 'regular' people playing great music for our audience, and we'd love for community members to join us."

NOTE: Due to the Music Conservatory's summer building hours, rehearsals in July and August will take place on TUESDAY evenings. WEDNESDAY evening rehearsals will resume in September.
