Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

Summit Youth Orchestra will be starting its next session in January, and is accepting auditions for all instruments from grades 7-12, or by teacher recommendation for younger students. The semester will run Jan. 8 thru March 26. The cost for the semester is $175, which includes nine rehearsals and one concert performance. Rehearsals are held on Sunday evenings at Dillon Community Church. Auditions will be held at Dillon Community Church on Nov. 6 from 5:30–8 p.m. Students who play a string, brass or wind instrument should be prepared to play two scales (one major and one minor, two octaves) and two short solo pieces, one fast and one slow, demonstrating contrasting styles. Nothing needs to be memorized. Percussionists should prepare five rudiments of their choice on snare and one solo on a mallet instrument. Contact Michaela at for more information.
