There's a $20 second semester fee for DMS students and a $35 fee for non-DMS students. Those who have completed at least the equivalent of Suzuki Book II and can read music can be part of this performing ensemble of friends who rehearse twice a month on Wednesdays, arriving and setting up at 4:45 p.m. and rehearsing from 5 to 6 p.m. in Milford begin- ning Wednesday, Feb. 5.
