The Southern Oregon Concert band encourages qualified musicians to join the band. Southern Oregon Concert Band is a solid Grade 3-Grade 4 band. We encourage prospective members to join at the beginning of a rehearsal cycle for an up-coming concert; November 13th 2012, January 29th 2013, April 2nd 2013. Prospective members will rehearse with the band for four weeks then undergo an evaluation by the section leader and conductor. After the initial 4 weeks prospective members will either be invited to join the band as a regular member if a there is a need in their section for additional players, invited to join a sub list if their section already has enough players or invited to try again in the future if it has been determined that their current skill level doesn't fit with the demands of the selected repertoire. Once accepted into the band we ask that you attend all rehearsals and we appreciate your loyalty and hope to have you around for a long time.
While we are very interested in hearing all players who might like to join us, at this time we have a particular need for: Oboe, Bassoon, and Horn.
We rehearse every Tuesday from 6:45 to 8:45 at the Ashland Middle School on Walker Ave. in Ashland. We present 4 concerts a year. Our annual Veteran's Day concert is on November 12th, the remaining concerts are on Thursday nights beginning at 7pm in December, March and May.
