The MSU band staff invites all faculty, staff and graduate students with previous band experience to play in the Starkville/MSU Community Band. The band will meet on Monday evenings during the spring semester from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the MSU Band Hall at 72 Hardy Road. The first meeting will be Monday, January 8, 2018. The Starkville/MSU Community Band will perform two concerts during the semester. Those with previous band experience are welcome, even if it's been a few years since they have played an instrument. The band staff also invites high school students who are at least 15 years old with one or more years of band experience to join, although band director's permission is required. The participation fee is $20 for the semester, and no pre-registration is required. For more information, or for those requiring special assistance to attend relating to a disability, contact Craig Aarhus, associate professor and assistant director of bands, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the MSU Band Hall at 662-325-2713.
