Children benefit when they participate in a community ensemble, band or strings. When they are part of an orchestra that experience helps to build a stronger skill level, offer more opportunities for scholarships, gives them community interaction and helps students have the freedom to express their creative side.
The Baldwin County Youth Orchestra offers all of this to its students. The orchestra kicks off its 2019 – 2020 year in August. Classes are offered on the following days: Beginning Strings, Mondays at 4:30 p.m.; Intermezzo / Allegro strings (an evaluation will need to be done to determine placement), Winds Ensemble: Mondays at 4:30 p.m.
Rehearsals for the full Baldwin County Youth Orchestra (audition required) are Mondays at 6 p.m.
The orchestra will host its annual fall “kick off” on Aug. 17 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at Fairhope Avenue Baptist Church.
There will be lunch, door prizes and of course rehearsal time. The Winds and Allegro students need to report at 11 a.m. for lunch and rehearsal.
There will be a mandatory parent meeting for all participants that day at 3 p.m.
