MSU Community Band seeking members

January 12, 2009

Interested musicians are invited to participate in the 2009 Starkville/Mississippi State University Community Band.

The group begins its second season with a Jan. 12 rehearsal to be held 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Famous Maroon Band hall (corner of Blackjack and Hardy).

"All musicians with previous instrumental experience may participate, with any level of experience welcome," said director Craig Aarhus.

The MSU assistant director of bands said participants must be at least 15 years of age and pay a $15 registration fee. Participants also may qualify for continuing education credits.

"Weekly rehearsals each Monday night (no meeting January 19) will lead to concerts planned for March 1 and April 19," Aarhus said.

For more information, telephone Aarhus at (662) 325-2713 or Patricia Brock of Continuing Education at 325-1457.
