Target Audience: IMD Registered Orchestra Members

Course Description:
The Jurisdictional orchestra is a great way to provide beautiful music that will enhance the worship experience.  It also gives wind, brass and string instrumentalists an outlet to use their gifts to glorify God and edify the body of Christ.  This session will provide resources and strategies that will help facilitate the process of starting an orchestra in your church, district or jurisdiction. (This class is for IMD Registered Orchestra Members.) Our goal is to connect with individuals across the Church of God in Christ that have an interest in starting an orchestra in their local area.  We desire to expand our network of orchestras across the country in an effort to share resources, strategies and encouragement.
