Membership Information & Fees

New players needed. If you play one of these instruments, consider joining us! Jazz band: Lead trumpet, guitar. Concert band: tuba, trombone, french horn

Our Society is a non-profit organization. The membership fees collected cover director costs, rehearsal and performance venues, music purchases and other expenses incurred by the Society. The annual fees are per person not per band, as many members play in more than one band.

Players make a commitment to their band and attend rehearsals regularly. Players are on time for rehearsals. Player MUST contact the conductor prior to the rehearsal if they are going to be late or absent. Concert band members are required to have the music folders at every rehearsal even if they are not able to attend. Music is often shared and missing parts can be frustrating to other players and the conductor.
