CLEARFIELD -- Stringed-instrument players are now being asked to join the city's community band so the group can expand its music repertoire.
The band, now in its seventh year, plans to perform selections from Handel's "Messiah" at an public December concert. Stringed-instrument musicians are needed for this performance.
All ages and abilities of musicians are welcome in the group, according to a news release.
The band has more than 30 volunteer members and has participated in other performances this year, including a spring concert and an evening performance at the city's Fourth of July celebration at Fisher Park.
Clearfield Community Band rehearsals are from 7 p.m. to 8:45 p.m., every Tuesday, at the Clearfield Community Arts Center, 140 E. Center St., beginning Sept. 4.
