When people think of Luckenbach, they think of good country music, dancing, and, of course, Willie. However, this Thursday, June 16, 2016, the Fredericksburg Community Orchestra, arm-in-arm with the 4 Proches, will present its 5th Annual “Bach at Luckenbach, Texas” fundraiser. The event will dress things up a bit for Luckenbach to benefit the nonprofit orchestra, which promotes string education and performances in Fredericksburg and the surrounding community.

Students in the Theresa Britt’s Suzuki program will present a short program of individual pieces and ensembles prior to the Fredericksburg Community Orchestra’s performance. Musicians who participate in the community orchestra come from all walks of life and range in age and performance levels. The Fredericksburg Community Orchestra and the Teresa Britt’s Suzuki program offer a place for both aspiring and professional musicians to develop, grow, and perform. The orchestra performance will run from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m., and will be joined by an amazing local group at 7 p.m. who will finish off the set.

Joining in and following the 20-piece community orchestra will be the 4 Proches, a Fredericksburg group of siblings who perform original folk, bluegrass, and Christian string band music. The group has coined themselves as “a vintage lifestyle band” and fill the room with some of the most beautiful, meaningful harmonies intertwined with boot-tapping fun. Equipped with a banjo, mandolin, a guitar, and a bass, the 4 Proches will present songs they write themselves that bring hope, inspire laughter, and bring the community together.
