Homeschool String Orchestra

Dear Homeschool Families,
This year we have the opportunity to begin a Homeschool String Orchestra program for all interested students. The program will be open to all homeschool students capable of participating in rehearsals, including students who currently do not play a string instrument but would like to. At present, it appears we have enough interest for two classes that would meet once a week and combine for semester concerts. All interested families are invited to attend an informational meeting on Friday, September 5th, at 6:00 pm at the Cox home at 3706 Glin Circle in Killearn.
We look forward to meeting you!
Dr. Jennifer Morgan
