Welcome to the Northern Colorado Concert Band! We are a community band of adult musicians who never stopped being band kids. Our group does not require auditions, and we are always welcoming new members regardless of instrument. We generally play high school to college level music and rehearse on Mondays during the regular school year. NCCB performs four concerts per year around Northern Colorado.
Feel free to send us a message, find us on Facebook, check out our FAQ page, or just show up with your instrument!
This is the moment you’ve been waiting for… we’re excited to announce that we will be starting rehearsals again on Monday, March 28 at Severance High School! We will stick with our usual time, 7:15 – 9:15pm.
Thank you to everyone who took our survey (twice), as it helped us shape our plans for our season. We understand many of you may have questions, and we have tried to answer them below:
Are vaccinations required?
Yes, each participating member will be required to show proof of vaccination status (initial shot + booster). You can do this ahead of time via email, or you can bring proof with you to rehearsal. There will be a board member checking each attendee for this.
What other protective methods will be in place?
We will provide surgical masks (to be worn when not playing), bell covers (brass players), disinfecting wipes, and hand sanitizer (use encouraged but not required). We also will have a smaller number of members, so we hope to be able to spread chairs out a bit more than usual.
What will our concert look like?
The board is currently looking into outdoor venues where we can perform this summer, which will provide a safe way for the community to attend with fewer restrictions.
Will we need to pay dues?
We will be waiving dues requirements at this time. (You are still welcome to make tax-deductible donations if you are so inclined!)
Is this a permanent decision?
The board intends to make ongoing decisions for the health and protection of our members, and we will continue to actively monitor CDC and local reports for transmission and infection rates. If the situation worsens again, we will revisit this decision.
What will next season look like?
We will make that decision when the time comes!
If you have any other questions or concerns, please let us know and we will do our best to respond quickly. Have a great day and we’ll see you soon! (Bring your friends!)
