Grand Feature Film Orchestra - community/youth ensemble (GFFO)

The Grand Feature Film Orchestra (GFFO)

We're a non-profit San Francisco Bay Area student/community group based in Vacaville, California.  With a passion for how music, sound effects, and visual media come together to tell stories, The Grand Feature Film Orchestra studies, rehearses, and presents creative original and restored film scores live with the movie. Films from Chaplin, Lloyd, Keaton, Lang, and more, come to life with the music perfectly synchronized with the action on the screen.

New Notes

New Notes (9am-11am)

For more experienced musicians, this chamber music curriculum reflects the transformation of the turn of the century Classic/Romantic standards into contemporary instrumental music of more recent eras, expanding the envelope of structure as well as some improvisational skills; from rags to riches.

Ancient Airs

An exploratory chamber music class is for instrumentalists who are newer to their instruments. The focus is on play-based music learning, improvisation, ornamentation, and other explorations of creativity. Chants and dances from around the world; Baroque to folk; and beyond.

In-person instrumental ensemble for budding musicians. Rooted in practices/repertoire from specific music periods and styles and stemming out to student-selected repertoire from any era.
