String players 18 years and older:  Are you interested in playing with an ensemble but aren't sure the symphony is the right fit for you?  Have you taken a long break from your instrument, or are you just learning to play?  We have a continuing opportunity for you!  If you are interested in playing with the Willmar String Connection, please contact Darlene Schroeder at (320) 599-4700.  Take that instrument out of the closet, dust it off, and come play with this informal, fun group!
