2011 Rehearsals begin Monday!

Yes, its 2011, a brand new year and our Owen Sound City Band rehearsal schedule gets underway January 3rd at 7:30pm in room 121 at the OSCVI; if you'd added "become a community musician" to your New Year's resolutions (because its good for you, good exercise for your mind, body and your soul, and its good for your community!) then Monday January 3rd will be an excellent opportunity to drop by the music room with your instrument and see what life is like inside the one and only official community concert band for the City of Owen Sound (since 1925!)  

The City Band welcomes new members any time, but on Monday we'll be collecting up the old Christmas concert folders and handing out our first new charts for our 2011 spring concert season (and Kiwanis!) so the music will be just as new to the old-hands as it will be to the tenderfoots!  Membership in the City Band is free (OSCVI has plenty of free parking) and open to musicians of all ages, we even have a few loaner instruments if you'd like to try something new and/or exotic. Details, a map and directions to OSCVI and our rehearsal/concert schedule are posted on our website and you can contact us at info at if you have any questions.

A note to band members: please bring your green Christmas folder, the little carols book and the black parade folder so these can be collected; new folders for the 2011 season are already waiting for us at the music room.  Players should aim to arrive by 7:15pm so as to be assembled, tuned up and ready to play by 7:30.

Hear you there!
