The FACE Orchestra is yet another important area to F.A.C.E. This group performs with the Community Singers as well as for many Effingham area organizations and activities.

The Orchestra is open to all those who desire to express themselves through music. The Orchestra welcomes all levels of playing ability and promises to expand your abilities to a higher level of performance. Come join and share in this outlet of artistic expression.

The F.A.C.E. Community Orchestra was originally organized as a string ensemble but quickly grew into a full-fledged small orchestra. As many as thirty musicians now play with the group.

Sacred Heart School band director, Beverly Marshall is the current director.

The orchestra is made up of amateur and professional musicians from surrounding communities.

There are no standards for joining the orchestra. The only requirement is a love for and a desire to play music. Ages of the musicians vary from ten to eighty-five years.

The orchestra practices every Thursday from 7:00 to 8:30 PM in the Sacred Heart School band room.

If interested in joining the orchestra, please contact Beverly Marshall at 217/821-1026 or Kendra Johnson at 217/868-9505
