Rehearsals for the fall semester of Me2/orchestra began on Thursday, September 12 (see full schedule below). Rehearsals are held weekly on Thursdays from 7:15 – 9:00 p.m. at South Burlington High School, located at the corner of Dorset and Kennedy Streets.
There is no audition and we do not charge a participation fee. All ages and ability levels are encouraged to join. Me2/Orchestra currently consists of members ranging in age from 12–88 years old, including students, health care workers, professional musicians, school teachers, and retirees.
We welcome patients, family members, friends, physicians, counselors, people recovering from addiction, and caregivers. This is a multi-generational, inclusive group. You do NOT need to have a mental health condition in order to join the orchestra. Roughly 50% of our current members have a diagnosis they are living with and have chosen to tell us about, but we won’t ask and you don’t have to share.
Me2/ includes people who have either directly or indirectly experienced the impact of mental illness – so this includes everyone! If you are interested in joining the orchestra, please email Me2/ using the form on the Contact page. We’d love to hear from you and will respond promptly with more information.
