Heartland Symphony in need of various players

Fall is on its way, and with the opening of schools and raking of leaves, along comes the promise of another season of music by the Heartland Symphony Orchestra.

Rehearsals for the 2013-2014 concert season begin Thursday, Sept. 5, and the Heartland Symphony welcomes new musicians to play with the group. At this time, they are especially in need of a timpanist and string players (including violin, viola, cello, and bass). All those interested are invited to call Fran Dosh at 1 (800) 826-1997 for information and a rehearsal schedule or go to the website www.heartlandsymphony.org, then click “Join HSO.”

The Heartland Symphony was incorporated 37 years ago by a group of musicians from Little Falls and Brainerd. The goals of the symphony are to bring orchestral music to concert-goers in Central Minnesota, to acquaint young people with the beauty of classical music and to provide an opportunity for trained musicians to play together.

This symphony is unique because it is not based in one community but draws its players and audiences from a large area in central Minnesota. The three concerts presented each season are played in both Little Falls and Brainerd. Weekly rehearsals alternate between Brainerd and Little Falls.
