Are you now quite comfortable with the basics and progressing confidently in your ability to read music? Are you eager to join an ensemble of enthusiastic adults who share your love of concert band playing? Pull up a chair with Elgin Encores, our Tuesday evening Intermediate 2 group!
We play a wide range of music: feature pieces, show tunes, light classical, popular…something for everyone! Although we sometimes draw from easier music and dip into grade 3.5 scores, our selections average around level 2.5 (intermediate), like Matt Conaway’s “The Adventure Begins.” Every rehearsal is a fast-paced two hours with a short social break. Full band rehearsals may take the whole time or be a mix with one-hour sectionals. You will need your instrument, Essential Elements Book 2, a music stand, and a pencil. Let your adventure continue by joining our happy band!
