Museum to hold lunch discussion

The Pratt Museum in Homer is hosting its monthly luncheon series to discuss the future plans for the museum at noon today.

Community chorus looking for members

The Kenai Peninsula Orchestra is accepting community members to join the community chorus that will perform Carl Orff's "Carmina Burana" in April. Registration and rehearsals for the chorus start in January. Singers in the central Kenai Peninsula can register for a community chorus class at Kenai Peninsula College so they can learn the music and rehearse locally until the rehearsals begin in Homer in January. The class meets Monday and Thursday nights in November and December at the college. The class can be taken for college credit or for no credit, though some fees apply either way. The class begins Nov. 4 but anyone interested in taking it needs to register at the college soon.

Anyone interested in joining the Kenai Peninsula Orchestra can call Maria Allison at 283-3024. The orchestra rehearses in Ninilchik. For more information, call Jean Brockel at 262-4084 or Maria Allison at 283-3024.
