Heartland Symphony in need of various players

The Heartland Symphony Orchestra (HSO) will hold rehearsals for the 2013-14 concert season beginning Thursday, Sept. 5. The symphony welcomes new musicians to play with the group.

At this time, the HSO is 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 800-826-1997 for information and a rehearsal schedule or go to the website, 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.
