Mullingar Town Band open night this week
Following a successful year, the Mullingar Town Band are back for the new season. The band and Colourguard resumed rehearsals last weekend and continue to welcome back their Junior members and Concert band throughout this week.
Last year the new Community Concert Band for adult players launched successfully. Musicians who had not played their instruments for 20 or 30, even 40 in some cases, years played at the Spring Concert last May with the Town Band.
The band are now enrolling new members for the year ahead. To join the adult concert band, players should aim to be approximately a grade 2 standard, but it is understood that it may take time to be comfortable playing again.
The Junior Band Music Programme is also now enrolling for new beginners, age 6+. This new class will take place on Tuesdays 6-7pm from 13 September. New beginners will take part in recorder playing, bucket drumming, flags, marching and brass and woodwind try-outs.
Open night on Friday
The band will host an open night on Friday, 9 September, 7.30-8.30pm for anyone who would like to play in for an hour of simple music and meet and greet the current members of each of the groups within the band. Refreshments will be served.
The registration link as well as further information for both of these groups are available on the band website at mullingartownband.ie or the Facebook page or: 0861999497; or: email@example.com.
