Strike up the band

The Campbell River Community band is starting its fall season on Wednesday

The  Campbell River Community band is starting its fall season on Wednesday.

Rehearsals are held at 7:30 p.m. in the Carihi band room.

The 30-member band was founded 15 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 where the band won a gold medal in 2005. This fall, the band will be working on a variety of autumn themed music for a November concert.

New members of any age with some band experience are always welcome, and should contact Celine 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.

Band members pay a modest fee to cover rental of the band room and purchase of new music.
