Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have been forced to cancel the remainder of our scheduled Concert Season, including our June 12th STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL and POPS CONCERT.  When things return to some semblance of normal be sure to check back for next season's concert listings. 


The "Nimrod" Project

In the midst of the pandemic, in order to maintain their  "chops," Maestro Cela proposed that the Orchestra make a collaborative video of a well-known piece and here it is.

.“Nimrod” is the ninth variation of Elgar’s “Enigma Variation,” and it refers to Augustus Jaeger, a music publisher in London. There was a point in time when Elgar was very depressed, and about to give up writing music, but Jaeger encouraged him to continue composing. Today, the Arlington Phil performs this work as a way of saying that, no matter how difficult the times, we will continue making music.

Orchestra members were asked to play their own part. Those who were able to submit recordings were given certain parameters, then the videos were edited together, and the sound mixed to account for the different recording levels. All the playing in the video is done by the shown players.”
