Venice, FL – January 2024 – What a wonderful and busy Holiday Season it was for the Venice Community Orchestra (VCO). We thoroughly enjoyed playing seasonal favorites for the Salvation Army’s Thanksgiving luncheon, Seaside Springs residents & guests and finished with an outdoor evening performance at West Blaylock Park entertaining Venice residents and out of town guests as they strolled through the festively lighted & decorated park.

This Spring, the VCO will have the unique opportunity to hold our weekly Saturday rehearsals at the Historic Venice Train Depot in the Freight Room (events venue)! Rehearsals will begin Saturday, 1/20 and through Saturday, 4/20. As always…we welcome all violin, viola, cello and bass string players.

This Spring’s repertoire will include selections by; Brahms, Holst, Puccini, Mozart, Lennon & McCartney, Bill Withers, and Ellington, plus several more classical and contemporary composers. Our rehearsal focus will be on our annual Spring Benefit Concert in late April or early May.
