Putney Community Orchestra seeks new members

PUTNEY — The Putney Community Orchestra will hold its first rehearsal of the season on Wednesday, Sept. 12, from 7:30-9:30 p.m., in the Michael S. Currier Center at The Putney School.

James Wallace, music director for The Putney School, will conduct the ensemble, and violinist Phil Bloch will serve as string coach. The orchestra is sponsored by The Putney School; there are no dues or other costs to participants.

Instrumentalists of all ages who are at the intermediate level or higher are invited to join this ensemble, including those who may not have played for a while and who may need some time to get back in shape.

The orchestra will include students and faculty from The Putney School, as well as interested musicians from surrounding communities and schools. String players are particularly encouraged to join.

The orchestra will rehearse regularly on Wednesday evenings from 7:30-9:30 p.m. following the academic calendar of The Putney School. Child care will be provided during regular rehearsals and concerts if requested.
