info for the next event

Season Opening Concert - All Beethoven

Rehearsals begin September 2, 2017. First rehearsal is at 10am at 

Ovitt Family Community Library - Meeting Room

215 East "C" Street 
Ontario, CA 91764-4111

Remaining rehearsals are scheduled to be at Bethel 9:30am - 12pm each Sat.

Here is important info for the Sat Sept 16th Rehearsal!

There is a BIG event going on right outside the church, which will cause some access challenges to get to our parking lot…the “Route 66 Cruisin Reunion”, which occurs the 3rd weekend in September every year. It is a big classic car show, and it blocks off Euclid St from Holt on the South , usually up to G on the north. (and of course the church is on Euclid at F. Our parking lot is behind the church, driveway off of F St.)


The best thing to do is allow extra time and to come from the east to the “back” side of the church.


Most exit the 10 Freeway at Euclid (Hwy 83) and go south to the first signal, which is 6th St.

Turn left on 6th, then right on Sultana, go south about ¾ of a mile to F St.

Turn right on F St and go to the church, which will be on your left between Lemon and F.


It may look like the way is blocked but you can go through to the church, and if someone tries to stop you, say that you are there for an event a Bethel Church. We are planning to recruit someone to act as a parking guard, so when you come, just let them know you are there for the symphony rehearsal at Bethel.

Symphony No. 8

Are you a musician  who wants to join us?

We have openings in all string sections, and select permanent openings for winds.

(Contact Dr. Mann for more information: email drmann@southlandsymphony.org)


We are seeking committed musicians who want to be part of a vital, high quality performing organization. Openings not filled by qualified permanent musicians are sometimes filled on a concert by concert, “as needed” basis. This is NOT a “union” orchestra. Ongoing rehearsals (with some exceptions) are usually held on Saturdays from 9:30am – 12noon, 3-5 rehearsals per concert, plus occasional sectionals, depending upon the repertoire.


You will hear selections from:

2001, A Space Odyssey

Pirates of the Caribbean

Star Wars

Magnificent 7

and many more...

1891 saw the birth of the City of Ontario, and the birth of motion pictures studios...

so the SSO is celebrating with classic and new music from your favorite films
