Colorado Dulcimer Orchestra

Welcome to the Colorado Dulcimer Orchestra Page.

 

It’s fun to play music with other people! For this reason Steve has been creating and collecting arrangements of various kinds of music for dulcimer players to perform together.

 

 

For 2016, the Orchestra will be under the direction of  long-time orchestra members, Judy Jones and Kendra Bartley.

Please contact them for information about participating.  They are gathering music and planning rehearsals to begin in November 2015.  Sign up below:
