We're back!!! Effective February 23rd we've resumed rehearsals as shown below.
Our home is in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. If you'd like to join us, please feel welcome to come to a reheasal!
We are now back at Killarney Secondary School, in the Band Room (A129). All players/visitors/observers must be fully vaccinated, show the usual proof, and be masked when not actually playing.
If you are new to the city and don't have your instrument, we may be able to help or refer you to local resources. We have a fairly full complement of percussion instruments including kit, timpani, vibraphone, congas etc.
We are a community band whose members have a wide variety of experience levels ranging from "developing" to professional. Our repertoire generally ranges from level 3 to 5, with performance material tending to average level 3.5 in difficulty. If you can only play the quarter notes you're still welcome, but we have material to challenge all players.
Please check the Calendar page for a full list of rehearsal and performance dates.
There will be no dues charged until September 2022.
All players are asked to arrive between 7 and 7:20 PM so that we can be seated and warmed up ready to start promptly at 7:30 PM. As you're no doubt aware, late arrivals can be quite disruptive. After contacting us, first time attendees need to arrive by 7 in order to receive a folder from the librarian. Stands are NOT provided at this time - please bring your own.
