Concert Band Haven't played your instrument for years?  It doesn't matter!  Here's your chance to become reaquainted with an art and activity that you once enjoyed.  Repertoire  includes music of many different styles and time periods.  Music majors are encouraged to participate on secondary instruments in order to expand their knowledge and skills in music performance and education.

  • Dig out those fingering charts.
  • Re-convert tht lamp into the trumpet it used to be!
  • But most importantly, don't miss this opportunity to continue or renew your love of performance.
