Silent Auction We held our sixth Silent Auction at the December 2, 2007, Holiday Concert. Our tremendous thanks to Janice High who co-ordinated the effort. The brass section entertained us all in the lobby of the Rogers Center for the Arts as we examined the items donated by players and friends. There was quite a selection and spirited bidding.
Pops and Civic Performances The orchestra's repertoire includes a variety of pops and light classical favorites for your event . Listen to selections from our September 26, 2004 Rogers Center Pops Concert. (Three mp3 files which the webmaster hopes will stream smoothly for dialup connections.)
