Celebrate the third concert and community book publication of our Symphonic Stories Series.  CRS will perform a series of musical pieces centered around the beautiful memories of nine inspiring, and heartwarming stories.  Each of these differing stories will be told through beautiful artwork that will be artistically colored by the community at large, and published in the symphony's third "Symphonic Stories" series, following "The Red-Covered Bridge," and "Short Stories."  Nine pieces of artwork will be distributed throughout the community as a coloring concert, both via traditional and computer mediums being allowed to complete the coloring.  The best nine entries representing each concert piece will be selected and placed in the book alongside a story reflecting the concert theme of "Colorful Memories."  All forms of media will be represented alongside the Columbia River Symphony for a magical presentation/performance.  

Entries due by April 15, 2017

How do I have to be?: We have members who are newer to the scene of music all the way up to very advanced performers.  It's a very inviting place for all players.  Those with less skill, learn and grow by performing with the other musicians, and over time they end up mentoring newer members in the future.  Players who are advanced also find that there are quite a few challenges to be had, but in the end, everyone is having important part of our group.  
When and where do you rehearse?: We rehearse every Saturday morning from -- Noon @ Warrenton High School (in the band room).  Please see the "Rehearsal Dates" page for the Fall/Winter rehearsal schedule!
What if I can't make it to EVERY rehearsal?: Of course, missing rehearsals is not the ideal way to rehearse and perform with any group, as working together on a consistent basis will allow us to achieve the most professional final product to our audiences. can be very busy, and we understand that some members cannot avoid missing a rehearsal or two.  All that we ask is that we are given some notice before the missed rehearsal.  That way the conductor can prepare accordingly.
