  • 2. SYMPHONI C BAREBONE S ORCH (SBO) Dear Musician, The Symphonic Barebones Orchestra was created to provide you with an instrument for both your artistic and professional ambitions. As an SBO Member Musician, you enjoy the same artistic and professional freedom in the democracy of a chamber ensemble, however guided by the structure of an orchestral ensemble, and supported by the resources and ideals of artist's service organization. Because our egalitarian structure of SBO is unlike traditional chamber orchestras, you will have the opportunity to explore your ideas about music through many venues. For example, your ideas may become opportunities for joint collaborations with peer conductors and multi- talented artists who in turn will collaborate with you. In addition, you will have the opportunity to present the premiere and participate in the promotion of a fellow colleague's new or rarely heard composition. We will also encourage you to present philanthropic educational concert programs of your favorite symphonies for a variety of audience types i.e. hospitals, schools and other non-profit entities. There will also be opportunities for SBO Musicians who are interested in performing concertos with orchestra and/or chorus. Opportunities will also be available for musicians to present and/or perform solo recitals through the MMML cooperative artist series program. As musicians and music lovers, we believe that opportunities are endless for excellent musicians with ideas and commitment to concert music. As an SBO Musician, all facets of your experience and training will come together and make sense. Most importantly, you will have the chance to make your unique contribution for future concert audiences. We look forward to hearing from you at our contact information below. Yours in Music, Anna Maria Manalo Barbara E. Seidel 142 Henry St. #5 Brooklyn, NY 11201 ϕ www.geocities.com/Vienna/Strasse/7577 Barbara Seidel 718.855.0561 seidelbe@yahoo.com

  • 4. SYMPHONI C BAREBONE S ORCH (SBO) VISION? Do you share our The Symphonic Barebones (SBO) is being created as a vehicle for new performers to develop and practice an integrated musicianship that synergizes music of the past with the myriad of art forms of the present, to prepare musicians and audiences alike for the concert music of the future. Equally important, SBO recognizes that today's concert musician has evolved to being among the most resilient citizens, ready to adapt to the unpredictable dynamics of society. Consequently, the concert musicians are not only Performers, Educators, and Directors; but have diffracted their inherent leadership to becoming music/non-music Producers, Managers, Librarians, Administrators, Programmers, Recording Engineers, Researchers, Therapists; and in the creative sector as Writers and Composers. 142 Henry St. #5 Brooklyn, NY 11201 ϕ www.geocities.com/Vienna/Strasse/7577 Barbara Seidel 718.855.0561 seidelbe@yahoo.com
  • 5. SYMPHONI C BAREBONE S ORCH (SBO) The SBO Vision • The professional objective of the SBO mission is to promote the growth of skilled musicians equally committed to the chamber orchestra protocol -- through their own leadership skills, either inherently as an artist or acquired from one of contemporary society's multitude of career industries. SBO equips its members with the necessary tools for this development, including performance (concerto appearance and/or a chamber recital date) and coaching opportunities, individual promotion kits in both traditional and new media; and provides the instrument for individual ideas to bring music and communities as close as possible. • The social imperative of SBO is to bring music to under-accessed audiences. Because SBO will hold multiple residencies in various established institutions in New York City, member musicians will have the opportunity to share and demonstrate their expertise while revitalizing the artistic life and well being of the respective community. • The SBO repertory includes standard literature for chamber orchestra, complemented by joint ventures with ensembles and companies of all artistic disciplines, genres and media. For the concert musician of today, SBO offers a FOCAL POINT FOR YOU 142 Henry St. #5 Brooklyn, NY 11201 ϕ www.geocities.com/Vienna/Strasse/7577 Barbara Seidel 718.855.0561 seidelbe@yahoo.com
