After reading an article in a Teen Strings magazine(Aug/Sep/Oct 07), I realized that I had managed to over look an article entitled "A New Dimension"(written by Donna Shryer) in my first assualt of the fourty-four page magazine. The five page article's opening paragraph compares the "musical layers" that musicians possess to a banana split. One of the scoops on our banana split would be chamber music, trios, quartets, quintets, sextets and octets make up the bits of strawberries in the fruit-flavored scoop of music.
On the fifth and final page, Mrs. Shryer has written a small three paragraph guide entitled "Getting Started". This guide contains one paragraph on how to join a "teen-geared music program", while the other two are simple statements from a seventeen year old violinist and a faculty member of a music camp. While reading the first paragraph, I noticed something about a local orchestra. . . . well my town doesn't have one. So I slept on it, this morning I awoke with this thought it my head, "What if I somehow start my own orchestra. . .hmmm??".
Being that I am only 14, almost 15, I'm pretty positive that I won't be able to start an orchestra without some help. Tomorrow, I plan to contact the city office and the Chamber of Commerce.
So basically my questions are: How would one go about doing such a thing, and Has anyone here done something similar?
Thanks in advance,
