Eric Jarboe promises that the upcoming Jennings County High School orchestras’ fall concert will be extra fun this year.
“Both orchestras are playing at a very high musical level this year,” said Jarboe, the director. “They are really enjoying the music, and I think the concert will be very lyrical and beautiful.”
The 54 members of the string orchestra and the chamber orchestra will perform during the Oct. 22 concert, and they will be joined by a special guest performer — Jarboe’s daughter.
“It is customary to have a guest performer during our fall concert. We’ve done that since 1984. This year our guest will be Brittany Jarboe Jennings, who will play the cello,” Jarboe said.
A graduate of Jennings County High School and Western Kentucky University, Jennings currently performs in the Louisville, Ky., area. She will play cello solos and accompany the orchestras.
Jennings practiced with both orchestras last week, Jarboe said, and everyone seemed to have great fun during the rehearsals.
Jarboe and his daughter will perform two duets during the concert. She will play the cello, and he will play the dulcimer.
“This concert is going to mean a lot to me,” Jarboe said.
