The MCPARC Community Band welcomes those with musical talent with the ability to read music and a desire to perform in a public setting. The group performs two season - a Spring/Summer with rehearsals starting in April with performances around July and a Fall/Winter with rehearsals starting in October with performances in December. Members will have access to some music from the upcoming season in advance of first rehearsals so they can listen to and practice the music if they wish.
Traditionally, meetings and rehearsals are held weekly on Monday evenings 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Feel free to come up and play as we hope to reach out to as many area musicians as possible. Old and young, skilled and beginner, or just rusty musicians are all welcome. Dust off your instruments, blow out the cobwebs and come on out to a rehearsal!
