I play in a string orchestra at a local university during the school year. It is a credit class and adults can join for free. We do 2 performances during the year.
I also play violin in a praise group band on Sundays. I like this group because I often play the soprano and alto part (double stops) with the traditional hymns. i am amazed at how my double stops are improving because of this. I am really close to going to a jam session that I found out they have once a week about 30 minutes away. I would like to have a song ready to play. I am nervous about this group because they have been playing for years.
