Welcome to the Fredericksburg Community Concert Band. We hope you enjoy our music and fellowship through a long and productive relationship. A few important bits of information…
- Annual Dues are required to partially fund our operation. Upon acceptance of your application, $35 are due immediately. If you join us after Labor Day, the amount for that year is $15. Continuing members: $35 due in January. Additionally, non-students joining for only the summer pay $15. Annual dues for students are $15.
- Attendance – Even though the Corporation is a volunteer organization, its purposes cannot be fulfilled unless the membership is committed to regular attendance at both rehearsals and performances. If you can’t make a practice or performance, please notify your section leader.
- The Concert Attire depends on the venue. For our Summer concerts, black pants or (long) black skirt and white short-sleeve polo shirts with the FCCB logo; for our Fall and Spring indoor concerts the dress is formal. Tuxedos for the men, floor-length black dress, skirt, or pants for the women.
- There are several opportunities for you to be involved in the operation of FCCB. In particular, we have three standing committees: Publicity, Equipment, and Fund Raising. Please speak with the Music Director or any Board member if you have interest or expertise in any of these areas.
Rehearsal , 7:00 – 9:00 pm on Wednesdays at Massaponax High School, is a critical time together. The expectation is that you will be diligently working on your music at home so that we can work as an ensemble on Wednesday evenings. Please bring a professional attitude to rehearsals. We all want to have fun, but excessive distractions will diminish our effectiveness.
There is a Section Leader for each area of the band. Please introduce yourself to your section leader and exchange contact information. This avenue for communication is very important.
Please return the completed Application to Karen Blake (saxophone).
