    They took violins and cellos out of black gig bags, and adjusted sheet music on stands, chairs placed in a semi-circle around their musical director.

    The orchestra members tucked instruments under their chins or balanced cellos between their knees. Knight readied the group to play “Irish Melody.”

    The first attempt of the morning was not quite up to par.
