I regret to inform you that West Plains Community Orchestra will not be continuing this year. Julian regrets - due to his busy schedule - that he is not able to continue working with the orchestra. Julian was not only our conductor but he was also our provider of music, a place to play, and part of our inspiration.
During the past few months I have been trying to find someone who would be able to replace some of the things Julian helped with, if not all. I know that we have some conductors among us but I have found it difficult finding free music and a place to practice. Also, it was difficult for me to dedicate the desired time to this orchestra that it deserves.
I still think that the West Plains Community Orchestra is a wonderful idea, and I want to thank all who participated and supported us. I hope that you will continue to play, and encourage others to keep the music going. I hope to one day see this orchestra comes together again and I hope you do too.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you so much,
“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” ~Plato
