MELBOURNE -- A Melbourne-based, all-volunteer orchestra is looking to add members to expand two sections.

The Melbourne Community Orchestra, which was named "Orchestra in Residence" for the city of Melbourne in 2008, is currently seeking string and percussion musicians to add to its group.

"We have plenty of spots available in both strings and percussion sections," said Lori McPherson, vice president of the Melbourne Community Orchestra said. "No audition is necessary for strings or percussion instruments."

A dynamic group consisting of more than 50 musicians, the Melbourne Community Orchestra has members of varying talent, from student players to adult hobbyists and full-time professionals.

"We accept everyone and will find them a position that fits their abilities," Ms. McPherson added.

The Melbourne Community Orchestra, which was established in 1989 by Clair Christy, performs seven sets of free concerts throughout the year at the Melbourne Auditorium. The group meets for rehearsal on Monday nights.

For more information, or to become a member of the Melbourne Community Orchestra, call (321) 285-6724 or email MelbourneOrchestra@gmail.com.
