The Central Kentucky Concert Band begins its 2018-2019 season rehearsals on Thursday, September 6 in the band room at Transylvania University’s Mitchell Fine Arts Center at 7:30 PM. The band looks forward to welcoming back old friends and making new ones.
The band is composed of teachers, professional musicians, civil servants, engineers, homemakers, retired persons, and individuals representing many other professions and walks of life, all united through their love of making music.
Prospective members are invited to sit in with the band during any or all of the first three “open rehearsals” on September 6th, 13th, and 20th. Auditions will be held during the rehearsal on the 20th for players wishing to join. Players representing all sections of the band are invited to sit in and audition.
The band has a diverse portfolio of music ranging from contemporary pieces such as Adams’ Lollapalooza, to classics such as the finale to Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4. The band’s regular season consists of three concerts in Lexington. Around the last part of June and the first part of July, the band performs several concerts as part of its “Summer Series.” These concerts are more relaxed and feature many styles of music–not just the expected marches. Occasionally, the band performs additional concerts in varied locations.
Prospective members are invited to check out the band on Facebook at Central Kentucky Concert Band. Any questions may be directed there or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
