If you play an orchestral instrument and are looking for an ensemble to join, the Jackson Heights Orchestra might be the right group for you. We are looking for members who have had orchestral experience and music training.
The JHO is a group of skilled musicians whose ages range from 18 to 87. We meet weekly on Tuesday evenings to rehearse for upcoming concerts.
We perform four major concerts each season – generally running from mid-October through mid-May – plus an outdoor concert the first weekend in July at Travers Park. The JHO wants to expand the string section and fill vacancies in the bassoon and trombone sections.
In our six years, we have presented over 22 concerts in Jackson Heights, as well as other communities in Queens and on Long Island. We have commissioned many new works from local composers and featured soloists from the tri-state area.
We operate as part of the Jackson Heights Beautification Group and enjoy the enthusiastic support of the Jackson Heights community. As an organization, our mission is to showcase local talent and reflect the diversity of Jackson Heights.
