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.
