08/10/11 The Marshall County Church Orchestra Ensemble Group performed at Wakarusa Miller’s Assisted Living on Saturday, August 6. The group played a variety of gospel hymns and Broadway and movie standards. Leader Don Harness gave the history of the orchestra through out the program and also told a little about each song that was played. The Wakarusa residents enjoyed singing along with the familiar hymns.
