The Band welcomes new members who would like to play fun, interesting and challenging music. If you have a background in playing a wind or percussion instrument, are 18 or older, and wish to commit to regular attendance at rehearsals, we would love to talk with you.
Beginning in March and running through September, our rehearsals are held on Monday evenings at the Wawasee Middle School, 7 to 9 pm. (Note: From time to time, a Monday evening rehearsal is cancelled due to a conflicting holiday or other event. Anyone wanting to visit us at a Monday rehearsal might want to contact us ahead of time to confirm we will be rehearsing on that particular evening.) Specific parts are assigned to new members by the director and section leaders based largely on an assessment of members already present, the needs of the band and the ability of the new member. Our concert season usually begins in late April/early May and extends to the end of September.
The Band does not charge dues. Each member is asked to purchase an official, green, short-sleeved shirt with the band’s logo. Shirts are offered in both men’s and women’s styles. Our official concert “uniform” consists of black slacks, black belt, black shoes and socks – and that green polo shirt. The shirt is available through one of our board members.
