Musical Chairs

Played an instrument once and have a few notes left in you?

The Moravian College Wind Ensemble and Moravian College-Community Orchestra would be delighted to hear them.

The Music Department will lend you an instrument. Or try playing percussion, for which you must read music—but you won’t have to worry about playing in tune.

The Wind Ensemble concerts:

• February 13. “Scenes from Melville” and a tribute to aviation by W. Francis McBeth.

• April 2. Lord of the Rings Symphony by Johan de Meij (b. 1953), with movements titled “Gandalf,” “Lothlórien,” “Gollum,” “The Mines of Moria,” “The Bridge of Khazad-Dûm,” and “Hobbits.”

The orchestra’s concerts:

• February 29. Dvorák’s “Hussite Overture.”

• April 19. “Dances from Estancia” by Alberto Ginastera and a work by Gabrieli arranged by a Moravian student composer.

Parts will be assigned at the first rehearsal of the group. The first MCCO rehearsal is 7:00-10:00 p.m. Monday, January 12. The first Wind Ensemble rehearsal is 4:00-6:00 p.m. Tuesday, January 13. It also meets Thursdays.
