It is an opportunity for musical development, fellowship and fun while serving our community in a very meaningful way. It has proven to be an ideal activity for musicians who have moved to NL to work, students who have come to St. John’s to attend Memorial University, and all those who have ever played in a school band, community band, or church band who would like to dust off their instruments and renew the joy and unique camaraderie of “banding”.
There are only two qualifications for membership: Love of music, and commitment to community service.
Instrumental experience is expected, but all skill levels are welcome. If you are interested in joining us, we invite you to attend a rehearsal where you will be able to assess your own comfort level with the level of music we play, and get a sense of the atmosphere at our rehearsals. After the rehearsal, have a brief chat with our Director to discuss continuing as a regular member of the band. It's that simple!
Some instruments are available for loan where necessary. There are no membership fees, instrument rental fees, or music purchases.
