03/29/11 Spring is here so itâ€™s time once again for new-member recruiting for the Plymouth Community Youth Orchestra.Â From April 4 â€“ April 8, 3rd and 4th graders in the Plymouth elementary schools will be addressed during their music class, as well as 3rd through 8th grades at St. Michaels. At each presentation, a Plymouth Community Youth Orchestra director will give a brief talk about string orchestral instruments; the PCYO members attending the presentation will perform a few songs; then all the students can come up and try each of the instruments. The South Bend Quinlan & Fabish music store will be providing violins, violas and cellos for the students to try at each school presentation. Â Students of any grade and school are welcome to attend a Registration Night held on Tuesday, April 12 and Wednesday, April 13 at 5:30pm in the PHS cafeteria. Quinlan & Fabish will also be on hand to offer instrument rentals.
