Jefferson College Concert Band – May 7, 2019

Do you play an instrument? Have you been wondering how you could get back into playing your instrument?

The Jefferson College Music Department is inviting experienced instrumentalists from both the college and the community to join the Concert Band for some great music-making and camaraderie. 

The Concert Band at Jefferson College is committed to performing the highest quality literature composed for the concert band or wind ensemble genre.  The ensemble performs works from the core repertoire for winds as well as more contemporary works and new compositions. The Concert Band performs twice each semester in the Jefferson College Theater, in addition to other opportunities in the surrounding Jefferson County community. The ensemble is comprised of both music major and non-major students as well as qualifying high school students and adult members of the community from throughout Jefferson County. In addition to the large ensemble, the Music Department at Jefferson College also offers opportunities to perform with chamber ensembles.

Players are needed in the Concert Band for all sections including woodwinds (flute/piccolo, oboe, bassoon, clarinet, alto/tenor/baritone saxophone), brass (trumpet/cornet, trombone, baritone/euphonium, French horn, tuba), and percussion. The Concert Band is open to all college students, music majors and non-muisc majors, and experienced adult musicians. “I know there are many excellent musicians in the area and I invite them to join us for this college-community concert band experience,” said Director Elke Overton.

There is no cost to participate in the band unless a participant wants to receive college credit for the Concert Band course by completing the required admission forms and class enrollment. Regular class attendance at band rehearsal and participation in all Concert Band performances are required for those seeking college credit in the Concert Band. Regular attendance for all members is expected. The Concert Band performs two concerts each semester.
