Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions about our group? We have a Welcome Letter that has all the intricate details about our band, and below are the most frequent inquiries we receive.

How do I join the band?

We are always accepting new members, and we do not hold auditions. Prospective members can simply show up to a rehearsal and start playing! You are also free to come and observe us if you’re unsure about joining.

When can I join?

We encourage prospective members to join us at the beginning of a concert cycle in order to comply with our attendance guidelines. The best time to join is either at the beginning of the year, or the first or second rehearsal after a performance. Our rehearsal dates and performances are noted on our calendar.

How much is it to join?

Our members pay dues of $60/year per person, or $30/year for students. We have 501(c)(3) non-profit status, meaning these dues are tax-deductible. We have an annual scholarship fund available to those who require financial assistance.

Where/when do you rehearse?

We rehearse most Mondays from 7:15 – 9:15pm at Severance High School. Check our calendar for rehearsal and performance dates and locations.

I play multiple instruments. Which one should I bring?

You are welcome to play your preferred instrument, and if you let us know about your secondary instrument(s), we can keep you in mind if we have a specific need. Many of our members also double as percussionists. We love it when members can be versatile!
