The Campbell River Community Band is starting its fall season on Wednesday, Sept. 11. Rehearsals are held weekly in the Carihi Band Room, from 7:30-9 p.m.
The 30-member band was founded 17 years ago by its current director, Céline Ouellette. Under various directors it has continued a tradition of concerts and competitions, including the National Music Festival.
This fall the band will be preparing for a late November concert on the theme of As the River Flows. New members of any age with some band experience are always welcome, and should contact Céline Ouellette at 923-6844 in advance so she can prepare a folder. There is no audition, and committed players with a wide range of ability and experience enjoy playing in the band.
