Bay Area musicians wanted!
Submitted By Renee Lorentzen
The Milpitas Community Concert Band (MCCB) is actively inviting musicians from all over the Bay Area to join us! MCCB performs three family-friendly concerts throughout the year (fall, spring, and summer) and is a musical presence at the City of Milpitas' Tree Lighting and Veterans Day Ceremonies.
The Milpitas Community Concert Band meets Wednesday evenings, 7:30 p.m. - 9 p.m., at the Milpitas Community Center (457 E. Calaveras Blvd., Milpitas). Annual registration is only $30. Musicians with at least two years' experience in woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments are invited to join. We welcome students, adults, and senior citizens to come make music. Even if you haven't touched that old clarinet in the garage for decades, dust it off and join us!
We are a low pressure, pleasant group of people who enjoy making music. Our concerts provide both musicians and audience with the largest variety of repertoire of any community band in the area. In addition to band "standards" we perform a variety of marches, musical/Broadway selections, classical pieces, transcriptions, and forgotten gems (some of which haven't been performed in the Bay Area in decades).
Come join this unique band! We welcome the following instruments: flute, any sized clarinet, bassoon, any saxophone, French horn, trumpet, trombone, baritone horn, tuba, and percussion.
For more information, please contact band director Jeff Yaeger at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Parks and Recreation Services at (408) 586-3210. Rehearsals start Wednesday January 4. See you there!
