Nashoba Symphonic Band Welcomes New Members for Upcoming Season
Nashoba Symphonic Band, now entering its fourth season under the direction of David W. Bailey, will begin rehearsals for the 2019-2020 performance season on Thursday, August 29 at 7p.m. in Nashoba Regional High School Band Room. (12 Green Rd, Bolton; Rte 117, west of Town Center). The 100+-member, multi-generational, community concert band is open to woodwind, brass, and percussion players and performs a wide variety of music, from classical standard band repertoire to music from film and stage scores and marches. Programs for the 2019-2020 season include music by Gustav Holst, Walter Piston, Ottorino Respighi, Ferde Grofé, Aaron Copland, and many others.
Wind, brass, and percussion players with experience at the intermediate or advanced high school level (no matter how long ago that experience might have been) are encouraged to join the band, especially section clarinets and trumpets, bass trombone, euphonium, and versatile percussion. No auditions are necessary; interested students, eighth grade and up, need a recommendation from a school music director or private lesson instructor. Musicians who are thinking about joining NSB and would like an opportunity to review some of the season’s pieces prior to the first rehearsal should contact Mr. Bailey at firstname.lastname@example.org. Open rehearsals for potential new members will take place on August 29 and September 5.
Nashoba Symphonic Band is supported in part by grants from the Cultural Councils in Bolton, Harvard, Hudson, Lancaster, and Stow, local agencies that are in turn supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
