Community Band Begins Rehearsals Feb. 13
In its twenty-fifth season, the Ashland Area Community Concert Band is for those that loved playing in band in high school or college and want the opportunity to play again. Performances for the ensemble this spring include a performance at the University with the Ashland University Symphonic Band on Saturday, April 21, and a concert at Brookside Park's Memorial Band Shell on Sunday, June 17.
Requirements for membership are the ability to play a wind or percussion instrument (no need to be a virtuoso); an interest in playing for enjoyment; desire to play a wide variety of music for the public; an interest in meeting new people who share a common interest and availability for rehearsals on Tuesday evenings.
Membership in AACCB is open to all adults. Students still in high school may also participate with the permission of the ensemble's director. A nominal membership fee of $25 is requested and payable by the fourth week of rehearsals to continue participation in either ensemble for the semester. The membership fee is payable at the Ashland University Box Office via phone at 419.289.5125 or online at www.ashland.edu/tickets by clicking on the "Buy Single Tickets" icon.
