Music Director Jane Ball conducts the Simply Strings Orchestra Friday, April 26, during its Spring Concert at Fenton High School with the Fenton Community Orchestra (FCO) and Fenton Jazz Orchestra. Simply Strings serves as a stepping stone to perform with the FCO. It caters to musicians who are returning to an instrument or just starting out. Ball said she keeps music simple to build skills and comfort playing. “In the past three years, they have really progressed,” said Ball, who also plays cello with the FCO.
