The quality of the performances by the Walla Walla Symphony is in large part a testament to the skills and musical abilities of our great musicians. We’re fortunate to have local, regional, semi-professional and professional musicians with a few highly competent amateurs as orchestra members. If you’re interested in playing with the Walla Walla Symphony, either as an orchestra member or guest artist, please contact Leah Wilson-Velasco at 509.529.8020 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some of the musicians who play with the symphony are also willing to play for your special occasions such as weddings, parties, and so on. If you’re interested in finding a musician for your special occasion, please send an e-mail to email@example.com or call 509.529.8020.
