Letter from Marcia

Hi Band!

Labor Day approaches and with it, a new Westport Community Band year! Here’s what you need to know –

Rehearsals: First full rehearsal is Monday, September 17th. Bedford Middle School, 88 North Ave, Westport. Downbeat at 7:30pm. Rehearsal runs to 9:30 each Monday, unless schools are closed. See you there!

Calendar: We’re working on an action-packed season. Important dates can be found on the Band’s website westportcommunityband.com (thanks, Nanette Jordan!) Stay tuned for more info to come.

Attendance: Members are expected to attend rehearsals throughout the Band season. In the event you cannot attend a rehearsal, it’s your responsibility to:

a) Let the director and your section leader know as soon as possible.

b) Make sure your music attends even if you can’t.

You can read the full policy here: Attendance policy

Dues: We rely on dues to cover some of the band’s operating expenses – and hope to complete collection early in the season. Amount: $75. Please bring your checkbook or cash to the first rehearsal. Dues policy  

Music: Please take care of your music, make sure it’s at every rehearsal and concert and, when it’s time, turn it in on time! If you have music questions, see our Librarian, Lindsey Olgilvy, in the oboe section.  

Conductor: The very wonderful, very talented Sal LaRusso will once again be our Music Director. We’ll also be looking for a new Assistant Conductor (Susan Schaefer is retiring to band-member-at-large). Stay tuned for more info, and check in with Sal if interested.

Board: 2018-2019 officers are listed below. We’re all very honored to serve. Please reach out with any questions and suggestions!
