Summer Play Around at New Philadelphia Moravian Church, Wednesdays:
See you next summer, 2024!
All band instrument players (woodwinds and brass alike – we might even allow some strings) are invited to come and play with the New Philadelphia Summer Play-Around Band! The band will meet each Wednesday from June 7th until August 30th (with the exception of July 5th) from 7:00 pm until 8:00 pm in the church Fellowship Hall. 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. Hope to see you there.
