Community band to begin rehearsals for fall concert

All area musicians who enjoy symphonic concert band music are invited to join The Pagosa Springs Community Band.

The band will begin rehearsals for its fall concert on Sunday, Sept. 9. Rehearsals will be held at the Pagosa Springs High School Band Room and will run from 2-4 p.m.

The band will be under the direction of Larry Baisdon and Malinda Fultz for this upcoming fall concert.

The Pagosa Springs Community Band was formed one year ago with the idea of bringing concert band musicians together to celebrate the joy of instrumental music.

Since the formation of the band, members have performed in last year’s Music Booster’s (now Curtains Up Pagosa) Christmas concert as well as the Spring Band O’ Rama concert which also featured the middle school band and the high school concert and jazz bands.

Last July 4, the community band presented a free concert on the lawn of the Springs Resort, featuring several Souza marches as well as “America the Beautiful.”

The fall concert date is not yet firm, but the event will take place either Saturday, Nov. 3, or Saturday, Nov. 17.

For the first rehearsal, please plan to arrive between 1:30 and 1:45 p.m. to fill out a registration form prior to the start of rehearsal at 2. Dust off those cases; we look forward to seeing all of you.
