The first Community Band meeting of the fall season has been scheduled for Monday, September 14, 6:30 at Selmer Middle School band hall. Director Ronnie Brooks will provide information about upcoming opportunities to participate in community music programs including the holiday band and chorus concert and Big Band style orchestra for the AiM production of White Christmas. This years Christmas concert in tentatively scheduled for Thursday December 10, 2009 at First Baptist of Selmer. White Christmas will be November 20-24 at McNairy Central High School Little Theatre.
These community music programs are open to the public and no audition is required for participation. The band welcomes musicians of all age and skill levels and it is not unusual to see student band members playing alongside retirees who have picked up their instruments for the first time in years. There are no fees for participation but members are required to provide and maintain their own instruments. Rehearsals are typically on alternating Monday nights throughout the season. Schedules and more information will be available at the September 14 meeting.
If you've been considering dusting off that old instrument or looking for a new opportunity to improve your current musical skills, Community Band is a great place to start. It provides an excellent opportunity to meet, practice and perform with other musicians in a very relaxed, fun and informal environment. Arts in McNairy invites you to come out and see what Community Band is all about.
