Could be the best thing you ever did and could also be boring. You have to get lucky and end up with people you can get along with.

Good luck Barry, I have been trying to join but they all want people who are at least grade 6.

And I'll be going for grade 3 sometime soon, so you can see how far I away I am.

I am amazed at how old people of my age are.....

my church is just glad to have people who want to be in the orchestra now a days. I say go for it. But, being apart of a group means supporting the group agenda and not expecting anything else. @Terry...what is this grading system?

Most of if not all of these recommended studies are available on FM website under etudes for free.

There are so many levels of community orchestras and such. It's hard to generalize.
