Come join the Alexandria Citizens Band, one of the oldest community bands in America, as they prepare for a fantastic 107th season. They are recruiting volunteer members in all sections –- drum, tuba, baritone, trumpet, French horn, trombone, saxophone, flute, clarinet, oboe, and bassoon players.
Join them at their first rehearsals of the new season – from 8 to 10 pm on Friday, September 20 or September 27, at Del Ray United Methodist Church, 100 East Windsor Ave, Alexandria. No auditions, they are welcoming all who want to have fun, find new friends, and help in their mission to make music accessible to all though free concerts. Just bring your instrument and a music stand.
They play music people love to hear, and band members love to play – Broadway, movies, jazz, pop, marches, patriotic, and classic band music. By day the musicians are teachers, small business owners, service members, lawyers, rocket scientists, housewives, students, retirees, construction workers, engineers, diplomats, and Uber drivers. They are under the baton of the very talented Alexandria-resident Mike Evans, who has created a music space for musicians to enjoy.
If you haven’t played in a while and are a little rusty – no problem — they’ll help you get your technique back. If you are taking music lessons as an adult, they’ll help you get better. If you are a high school student, or home schooled, it’s a great place to practice your art. The program is funded through a grant by the City of Alexandria, Office of the Arts’ Arts Grant Program.
