Weekly Moravian Music Notes for 60th Anniversary

CALENDAR

Summer Play-Around Band, New Philadelphia, Moravian Church, all band musicians are invited! The band will meet each Wednesday from 7:00-8:00pm in the church fellowship hall (on the God’s acre side of the church) until August 30. We will play chorales from the green and blue books that are selected by the players. A different local band leader will direct each night. This is a great opportunity to meet new players, learn a new instrument or part, and keep those lips in shape over the summer. Steve Anthony, patriciaanthony@triad.rr.com www.newphilly.org
