Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a minimum standard required to play in the MMO?
There is no minimum standard but all new members are required to attend a short audition. This is to help us choose appropriate repertoire and to allocate seating within the orchestra. More information on auditions can be found here.

How often does the orchestra rehearse?
There are roughly 10 weekly rehearsals per semester and they are three hours in duration. We understand how busy medical students are, and we aim to make MMO a fun and manageable commitment. For full rehearsal and concert dates in 2017, click here.

Is there a cost involved in joining the orchestra?
Membership for students in 2017 is $20 for one semester or $35 for two. Your membership amount contributes to the purchasing and hiring of music, instruments and performance venues.
