2019 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) between Memorial Day and Labor Day. 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
