A girl went out on a date with a trumpet player, and when she came back her roommate asked, "Well, how was it? Did his embouchure make him a great kisser?"

"Nah," the first girl replied. "That dry, tight, tiny little pucker; it was no fun at all."

The next night she went out with a tuba player, and when she came back her roommate asked, "Well, how was his kissing?"

"Ugh!" the first girl exclaimed. "Those huge, rubbery, blubbery, slobbering slabs of meat; oh, it was just gross!"

The next night she went out with a French horn player, and when she came back her roommate asked, "Well, how was his kissing?"

"Well," the first girl replied, "his kissing was just so-so; but I loved the way he held me!"

The Metropolitan Chamber Orchestra
The Metropolitan Chamber Orchestra is a community orchestra composed of approximately forty non-professional musicians who perform classical chamber music for the public free of charge in the Jackson metropolitan area. We perform at least three concerts during each season.

The orchestra is twenty-three years old. It had its beginning in 1984 when Gary Robinson, a graduate student in music education at Mississippi College, invited local musicians, most of whom are non-professionals, to join him in forming a community orchestra as part of a school project.

Through the generosity of such benefactors as the Gertrude Ford Foundation, Stuart C. Irby, Jr., Muller Addkison, Jr., State Farm Insurance Company, Dr. and Mrs. Charles Jackson, Dr. and Mrs. Michael LeBlanc, and many other contributors, we have had the good fortune of continuing to present excellent programs. Its programs have become a valued cultural asset to the metropolitan area.

We have an excellent and well-qualified conductor. Wayne Linehan is a professional musician who plays with the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra and is an adjunct music professor at Millsaps College and Mississippi College. Bob McNally, for many years concertmaster of the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra, is a highly respected violinist throughout the country.

Our non-professional musicians freely give hours to practice and performances. A few selected students, such as those under the supervision of Dr. Perry Combs at Hinds Junior College, are given opportunities to develop their talents in an orchestra setting. Our concerts have been performed in past years in the historical setting of the Old Capitol State Historical Museum. Because renovations caused by Katrina are underway, St. Andrew's Episcopal Cathedral graciously allowed us to perform in their beautiful sanctuary.
