Are you now comfortable with the basics of your instrument 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 the Elgin Encores, our Tuesday evening middle group!
We play a wide range of music: feature pieces, show tunes, light classical, popular…something for everyone! Our selections are at about level 2 (intermediate). Every rehearsal is two hours long plus a short social break, and can be made up of a full band rehearsal for the whole time or a mix of full band rehearsal and one-hour instrument-specific clinics or sectional groupings. You will need your instrument, Essential Elements Book 2, a music stand, and a pencil. Come and join our happy band!
