Local Orchestra Performs At Fair
An orchestra is a large instrumental ensemble that contains sections of string, brass, woodwind, and percussion instruments. Usually associated with large professional groups, small towns would support local musicians in military bands, marching bands or small orchestras. The proportion of instruments used allowed for classical pieces to be played that could not be done by other ensembles.
On September 6, 1912 the Barre, Vermont Orchestra performed at the 1912 Washington Fair.
