What’s your new year’s resolution? If you played an instrument in high school or college, the Chatfield Brass Band encourages you to dig out your instrument from the closet and start a new adventure! The band will begin preparing for a brand new year of rehearsals and concerts and invites new members. As they look forward to their 50th anniversary in 2019, the board of directors has set a goal for “50 by the 50th!” — that is, 50 band members by 2019. The band currently has 35 very active musicians and would like to build on that number to ensure that the band continues to be a strong and sustainable organization.
Carmen Narveson, director, says of the initiative, “While we have a great, talented group of musicians in our band, we invite other instrumentalists who love playing their instruments to join in the fun.” Prospective members are encouraged to visit and join at any time. Instrumentalists that haven’t played since high school or college will find understanding, fellow musicians who went through the same “lip-building” process when they joined the band. The band is a traditional concert band with woodwinds, brass and percussion.
Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings at 7 p.m. in the Chatfield Elementary School band room beginning on Thursday, January 18, 2018. Contact Carmen Narveson at (507) 867-3315 or email@example.com for more information.
