With the cultural season opening in September, Daytona State College’s School of Music, Entertainment and Art invites local musicians to join the symphonic band, symphony orchestra or jazz ensemble. No fees are required for participation unless college credit is desired.
The Daytona State College Community Symphonic Band, developed in the spirit of the old John Philip Sousa Bands, performs traditional and modern classics as well as marches, Broadway hits and movie selections. The band welcomes community members who can read music and play a woodwind, brass or percussion instrument to join as members of a 65-piece concert ensemble.
The 26th season of the band will commence with an open rehearsal, including new and returning members, on Monday, Aug. 27, at 7 p.m. on the Daytona Beach Campus in the Theater Center (Building 220), Room 219. Rehearsals are held every Monday from 7 p.m. to 9:50 p.m.
For more information, call Douglas Peterson, band conductor and chair of the School of Music, Entertainment and Art, at 386-506-3276, or Peter Waidelich, associate professor, at 386-506-4690 or waidelp@DaytonaState.edu.
