Villa Musica's Summer Orchestra

The Villa Musica Summer Orchestra is proudly celebrating its 10th year! Delighting in their diversity, the participants in this program represent every possible musical “type,” from high-level amateur players to professionals. Each participant shares a passion for orchestral music and is especially inspired to gather together each Summer to share this commonality.

Each year, word spreads about the program – the camaraderie, the joy, the wonderful repertoire – and the program grows. This year will be no exception. All players are auditioned if it is their first time with the program, and are required to be available for all rehearsals and the concert. Concerts are FREE to the public. In 2019, both concerts attracted over 750 audience members made up of friends and family of the musicians, children and adults affiliated with Villa Musica and/or the library, and members of the homeless population who live in the East Village.

Please direct any questions to the orchestra manager, Ciara Dabkowski, at To register for the 2023 sessions, please select a session (or both) below and proceed with the registration process.
