Sequim Community Orchestra sets concert for Feb. 24

Sequim Community Orchestra, along with the Sequim Community Youth Orchestra, host a free concert at 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 24, at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave.

The orchestra will perform selections by Dvořák, Britten and Corelli.

The Youth Orchestra is composed of beginner, intermediate and advanced groups, each of which will share what they’ve worked on this school year in after-school classes.

A bake sale will be held to support the youth program.

The orchestra is a group of people from various musical abilities and life stages. This year, a number of local students have joined the orchestra from across the North Olympic Peninsula.

The rest of the orchestra includes adults who are lifetime musicians and others who haven’t touched their instrument in decades.

“The unifying factor is the love of playing music with other people,” orchestra members say.

The Sequim Community Orchestra is a nonprofit organization whose mission is “to Perform, Inspire, and Educate”. The youth strings program provides professional strings education to all interested youth.

The orchestra maintains an inventory of quality string instruments that youth can use at no cost and graduate to larger instruments as they grow. The organization depends on private donations to fund highly qualified music instruction, instrument purchase and maintenance, and scholarships that make it so that finances are not a barrier to learning to play orchestral music.

The adult orchestra performs three concerts a year; this concert on Feb. 24 is the second for the 2023-24 season. Watch for the final concert in June.
