We’re looking for additional players on ALL concert band instruments. If you were a competent player in high school or college and have “lapsed” in your playing, this is the place to get back to playing on a regular basis! If you are a current player looking for a regular rehearsal venue, this is it! If you play any of the instruments on our “Wish List” to the right, please contact us.
We do not audition or have a “play-in”. Come join us for a few rehearsals and see if you’d like to become a member. If you’re interested or have questions, please leave a comment to that effect.
You can “check us out” on any of our recording links — either Cape Ann Web or Jukebox Alive in the column on the right, or on our “Recordings” page at the top of your screen.
We’re recruiting players for all of our sections. If you’re one of those “rusty” musicians who played a concert band instrument with some proficiency, but slacked off playing when you got out of school, please consider coming up to Rockport to join our rehearsals. If you enjoy the experience, consider joining our group.
From now until the end of April, we’ll be reading through all kinds of music: some new, and some really old. Some of the music we’ll use during our upcoming seventy-seventh season of summer concerts in 2010, and some we’ll decide we don’t want to keep in our library at all.
There are only a few scheduled performances during this time (see “General Performance Schedule” Page), so there is very little pressure on individual players “to perform” in public.
To your right (“Our “Wish List”), there is a list of our particular instrumental shortages. Please note that we accept all players. It’s up to the individual to determine if we’re the right group for them to join (degree of music difficulty, etc.), so come give us a try.
