Recorder players interested in joining LARO should contact Music Director Tom Axworthy at 562-773-2265 or scemcEntertainment@yahoo.com. Usually Mr. Axworthy can find ways for you to join us (no audition required) and play the instrument(s) you wish.
We rehearse three Tuesdays a month from 7:30 – 9:30pm at St. Bede’s Episcopal Church in Mar Vista. Our rehearsal “sessions” start with the first rehearsal leading up to a concert. Concerts are generally February, June and September, the sessions therefore are October-February (fall/winter), March-June (spring), and July-September (summer).
Dues are collected for each session, mainly to pay for our Music Director and rehearsal hall rental. The LARO Bylaws provide that payment of dues or a dues waiver is required to be a member of LARO. Our President may grant a dues waiver for financial hardship.
Dues are currently set as fall/winter $140, spring $140, and summer $110 since the summer session is typically shorter. Dues are to be paid by the second rehearsal of the session or a late fee of $10 is added. Our rehearsal schedule can be found under FOR MEMBERS / Schedules.
