All Fingers on Deck! Filipino Association to Form Rondalla Club
Posted March 21

This is a call for prospective applicants to be part of the musical ensemble Rondalla Club of Kansas City (RCKC), sponsored by the Filipino Association, with funding assistance from the Filipino Cultural Center Foundation and a grant from the Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission.

Musical instruments in a typical rondalla include the following: banduria, octavina, laud, guitar, and bass. Since we have limited time and instruments available to complete our initial goals for the group, we are seeking members who preferably:

a) have some level of musical background;
b) play/have have played a musical instrument;
c) can read musical notes;
d) will commit to an intensive 10 week/2 hours per week course with a professional instrumentalist, starting on April 12.

The grant allows a modest honorarium for our professional instrumentalist, who will provide instruction and leadership for the group. Each selected applicant will have to contribute a donation of $15 per session over the course of 10 weeks. Partial scholarships may be available.

A selection committee will decide on the final composition of the RCKC. If you are interested in participating, FILL OUT AN APPLICATION by March 29.
