Regina Community Orchestra

The Regina Community Orchestra is open to adults and older youth who want to play symphonic music (strings, winds, brass, percussion) both classical and contemporary. This affordable ensemble provides an opportunity for members to play music that they enjoy, develop their musical skills further, and socialize with others having similar interests. This course is open to anyone without audition; however, basic instrumental and musical skills are necessary since the orchestra's principal objective is improving playing for intermediate/advanced players.

Due to the remote delivery format of this program, there will be no ensemble rehearsals. Instead the RCO Group Class will primarily focus on three curriculum areas:

  • Repertoire Analysis: instructional videos and/or video conferences with the conductor will introduce players to the repertoire, help players analyze the musical elements in the repertoire, and provide direction on the artistic objectives of the repertoire.
  • Individual Improvement: assignments will be provided in your instrument area based on the repertoire selections, helping you build goals to improve your current playing level.
  • Group Clinics: we will also be providing special clinics throughout the term in your instrument area using the group's repertoire as the guide. This will provide opportunity to get feedback on your playing and ideas for improving technique and musicality.


Join instructor Morgan Moats to learn the basics of making songs in Introduction to Songwriting. No prior music knowledge is required for this course, as participants will be given direction where to start; from lyrics to melody, there will be no stone left unturned when it comes to creating your own song.
