The recent extension of the COVID-19 restrictions has created a challenge for us resuming rehearsals. The SKSS Music Room where we normally rehearse is not large enough for us to safely physically distance, so we have to find an alternative location if we want to begin rehearsals before January.
Do you play an instrument and are looking for a band to play in? Are you a high school student looking for more playing time? Looking for a band to play in now that you are out of high school or wanting to dust off that instrument you haven’t picked up in a while? Then come and join our band! We’d love to have you come play with us!
The Kamloops Community Band meets every Sunday night at 7:00pm to 9:00pm in the South Kamloops High School band room (accessed from 9th Ave. in the Sagebrush Theatre’s parking lot).
Rehearsals start the Sunday following the first week of school in September and the season normally ends with our final performance in Riverside Park, sometime in June.
Our members come from all walks of life; from high school and university students, to business, career, and working people, and even active seniors. Anyone who is beyond the beginner level on an instrument (able to play a few basic scales) is welcome to join the Kamloops Community Band. No auditions necessary. Either contact us or simply show up at a practice!
Membership fees help us to pay for the rental of our rehearsal room, as well as buy new music. Membership fees are $50 for the year, due by the first rehearsal in October.
We’d love you to come join us!
