Make music and have fun with the Delmar orchestra

BETHLEHEM — The Delmar Community Orchestra, a Bethlehem tradition for over 70 years, will begin its 2013 fall season rehearsals on Monday, Sept. 16, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Bethlehem Town Hall auditorium at 445 Delaware Ave., in Delmar. 

The orchestra, conducted by Michael Blostein, rehearses weekly on Monday evenings and will perform a series of four concerts during the fall season — two concerts for residents of area nursing homes and two public concerts. 

New members are always welcome, and instrumentalists of all ages and abilities are invited to participate.  The orchestra is especially seeking new members in the string section.

“Come join us in making music in a fun, supportive atmosphere,” urges Nancy Felberbaum, the orchestra’s president, in a release.
