Battle of the Sections: Orchestra Edition

Online Event | Thursday, June 25, 2020 | 7:00 PM

About This Event

For the first time in history, New West Symphony is launching a battle extraordinaire challenging its orchestra sections to compete for the honor of being named “The Best Orchestra Section in the History of the World.”  

Do you swoon for Strings? Are you moved by Percussion? Does Brass make you bold? Can you feel the Woodwinds in your hair?   

When you purchase a ticket to this event, you’ll join in the fun by choosing a team that represents your favorite section! The team that raises the most amount of money will win the coveted “Biggest Bang for the Buck” Award, and the section that receives the most votes during the concert will claim the title “Best Orchestra Section in the History of the World!”

How to Attend

All registered guests will receive a link to attend the live online event on Thursday, June 25 at 7:00pm. The celebratory event will last approximately one hour. Festive virtual attire is encouraged.

Meet the Arrangers

Four composers are arranging music for each orchestra section for their performance on June 25! Music we know and love will make its way into fun and exciting medleys based on four themes: Upbeat, Downbeat, Dance Beat, and Heart Beat. Meet the arrangers now and get a preview of the music being performed!
