String players from the Cape Community Orchestra have banded together to resume practice and are looking for a viola player to fill out their ranks.
Calling themselves the Intrepid Strings, the group formed in mid-September when the Harwich Community Center opened for limited occupancy. Spaced out appropriately in the large multipurpose room, the group consists of four violinists, three cellists and a keyboard player. They are currently playing music arranged for trios (two violin parts and a cello part), but could greatly expand their available music selections if they had a violist to complete a quartet (two violin parts, a viola part and a cello part).
Organized by Cape Community Orchestra president Paula Miller and directed by Cape Community Orchestra concert master Kwon Faith, Intrepid Strings plays relatively easy music for its own practice and enjoyment. The full orchestra, which includes string, wind and percussion players, is not currently meeting due to concerns about the pandemic.
