The Northeast Orchestra of Minnesota's Twin Cities began 43 years ago, as the Northeast Chamber Orchestra, with the same conductor for the past 13 years.
NEO is one of the few amateur orchestras here that rehearse in the daytime. Rehearsals are
Fridays 9:30a to 12:00n (with a goodies break). We play 4 concerts a season, with a season of September to May, all at Church of St. William at 61st & University NE in Fridley.
The orchestra welcomes inquiries from any musician. We do not hold competitive auditions, yet places available in the brass and wind sections do depend on the needs of the orchestra for instrumental balance. Our mission is for our members to have a way of continuing to play great music, and enjoy the company of musical peers.
