Fortissimo

Fortissimo  is a Junior Level String Orchestra
In 2013 Fortissimo was founded by David Shannon in response to a need for
moderately advanced string musicians to develop their music reading skills and
gain experience playing in an orchestral context.
Some of the goals for this orchestra are to:
• Develop skills for music reading in an orchestra context
• Learn professional orchestral etiquette
• Become comfortable playing in a group context
• Develop poise and confidence playing in public
• Develop friendships with others interested in music
• Develop the tools they'll need to play in a more advanced orchestra
begin to realize the joy of making music and the satisfaction of achieving hard-
earned goals

We invite any medium level students of any age who are serious about developing
their skills as a musician to join this orchestra. Enrollment is open in August and
early January each year. Contact us here at
administrator@peachtreearts.org
for
additional information and to enroll.

Details: Meets Monday 6-7 pm at Carriage Lane Presbyterian Church, Fellowship
Hall.  Must bring own music stand, pencil, and instrument.

Thoughts on the Arts
The role of the arts in communicating
truth has been much debated over the
years in Christian circles. Colin
Harbinson in his article  “Art and
Revelation” provides an insightful look at
this issue; “Art is at its best when it
uncovers what familiarity has concealed,
and opens us up to a fresh perspective
on truth-the truth about any subject. 
This would strongly suggest that artistic
expression, at its best, is compatible
with God’s way of revealing truth to
man.” Read article
