Orchestra forming in Gibson Co
All instrument players in the area are invited bring their instruments to the first meeting and rehearsal of the newly formed area orchestra from 6:30-8 p.m. Thursday, Jan 3, in the band room of Peabody High School in Trenton.
The fee to participate is $25 per semester and will be used to buy music. The rehearsal schedule will be the first and third Thursday of each month, and it will be set up loosely on a school semester system. The first semester will be January through May, with a public concert at the end of the semester. The second semester will be in the fall through middle of December, culminating in a Christmas concert.
The rehearsals will last exactly 1 and 1/2 hours, with first note of music starting exactly at 6:30 p.m. and the last note played exactly at 8 p.m. Band members who need to sign up, pay fees, tune up, etc., must take care of those activities prior to 6:30.
