Membership in the AVB Community Band is open to musically qualified adult musicians over the age of 18 and is based on whether a vacancy exists in the section as well as your musical ability. Most of our music is of “moderate” difficulty.
Membership in the band requires a significant time commitment. There is normally 4 rehearsals before each concert. Our expectation is that all band members attend all rehearsals. We realize that there can/will be scheduling conflicts. Missing one rehearsal before a concert is usually not a problem. If you need to miss two rehearsals before a concert, we may ask you not to play for that particular concert. This decision is made by the musical director. Rehearsals are held every Monday night from late August through the December concert and from Late January through the May concert. For each concert, there is also a Sunday evening dress rehearsal.
All concerts are normally held on the 3rd Monday evening of the month. Scheduling conflicts at the theater venues may require us to alter this schedule. The concerts start at 7:00 and usually run about 90 minutes.
In order to be considered for membership, please fill out the form below. Once you submit the form, our musical director will review the information and contact you.
