Our Small Ensembles

Who we are
As different as the members of Rainbow City Performing Arts may be from one another, we share a love of music. And our members occasionally form their own small ensemble to explore music written for certain instrumentation such as a string quartet, a brass quintet, or a clarinet choir.

Have you always wanted to play in a saxophone quartet but didn't know where to find other players? Or maybe you'd like to challenge yourself with more solo opportunities. Just ask around! Chances are you can put together a group from among our members to satisfy that itch. And if you've only got seven people for that octet, our well-connected members probably know someone who is not currently playing with one of our ensembles who might be interested in filling the last seat.

What we do
Our small ensembles sometimes come together for a specific event, such as to open a concert or play at intermission at one of our larger ensembles' concerts. Others form just for the joy of playing, and may only occasionally perform in public. Our groups have been tapped in the past to fulfill requests from community organizations who needed a small group that we couldn't otherwise supply (pep bands are great for birthday parties, but a little overkill for traditional Sunday services...). What you do is up to you and your fellow musicians!
