A community band for citizen musicians

A community band is forming for citizen musicians of all ages in the greater Mill River Area.  Bear Irwin, Director of Bands at Mill River Union High School has volunteered to be the first Music Director of this group, although it is anticipated that there may be other conductors, as well.

The first meeting/rehearsal will be at Mill River Union High School, on Wednesday October 3, from 7- 9 p.m. in the Band Room at Mill River Union High School.  Musicians of all ages are welcome as long as they come with a desire to work collaboratively in an ensemble setting. The Mill River Area Community Band will rehearse from 7-9 p.m. every other Wednesday starting October 3.

Nan Dubin and Janine Rodgers have accepted appointments as Organization Co-Presidents. It is expected that participants will enjoy regular and routine opportunities to rehearse Band Repertoire, although it is possible that public performances may also be scheduled in the future.
