Join the Band

The band is continually seeking new members and is relatively easy to join. Although no auditions are required, applicants must be able to read music, have their own instruments, and be willing to regularly attend weekly rehearsal sessions. All applicants for membership will be informally evaluated by the band’s director and/or section leaders and will be assigned within the appropriate section based upon his/her musical abilities, experience, and the needs of the band. If you have not played for a while and are a little “rusty,“ you may simply attend rehearsals until you feel ready to perform at a concert.

New band members are required to attend at least (3) practices before participating in a performance. New members are also required to pay an initiation fee of $50.00 to cover the costs of a music folder and a band shirt.

The band presently has a particular need for clarinetists, percussionists and a bassoonist. However, all interested instrumentalists are welcome to apply.

The band rehearses on Thursday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at the First Baptist Church South Campus, 25900 US 27, Leesburg, Fl.

Those interested in joining the band should contact either John Landers at (716) 863-2742 or Betsy Chandler (352) 223-2734 for additional information.
