2017 Play-Along with the South Bend Symphony

Saturday, August 19, at the Chris Wilson Pavilion in Potawatomi Park


The Community Foundation's Play-Along with the South Bend Symphony is back! To participate, you'll need to complete the online registration form. Full event details and .pdfs of the sheet music are below.

Once again, the Community Foundation of St. Joseph County has partnered with the South Bend Symphony to create an opportunity for community musicians to perform with the SBSO. As part of the Symphony's August 19 concert for the 2017 Community Foundation Performing Arts Series at Potawatomi Park, community musicians can join the SBSO to perform Kaiser-Walzer, Op. 437 (the “Emperor Waltz”), by Johann Strauss II.

Each community musician will be asked to bring his/her instrument, sheet music, and a music stand to the Chris Wilson Pavilion at Potawatomi Park on Saturday, August 19, for the performance. We'll provide chairs. There will be two mandatory rehearsals for this performance: The first will be Friday, August 18, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Kroc Center in South Bend. This rehearsal will be with the conductor and some of the section leaders of the SBSO. The second rehearsal will be at 4:15 p.m. on Saturday, August 19, the day of the performance. This will be a much shorter (~30 minute) rehearsal at the Chris Wilson Pavilion at Potawatomi Park, where the concert will be held.

You can start practicing right now. Arranged by Jerry Lackey, this version of the "Emperor Waltz" was commissioned by the Community Foundation and is free to download and print. You'll find all the parts below in .pdf format. Multiple parts are available for some instruments; choose whichever part you wish to perform. We've also included mp3s to help you as you practice.
