Posted:

ALPHARETTA, Ga. – The Alpharetta City Band, which has entertained audiences throughout the area for the past 25 years, has immediate openings in several sections.

The band is currently seeking musicians in the percussion, clarinet, saxophone and double reed sections. No audition is required, although band members must be able to play proficiently at the high school level.

The band’s repertoire includes a diverse selection of music, from traditional concert band compositions to show tunes, movie themes and patriotic marches. Rehearsals are held on most Wednesdays from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Crabapple Government Center, 2624 Broadwell Road, Alpharetta. The ensemble is sponsored by the Alpharetta Parks and Recreation Department, but welcomes members from throughout the north metro area.

“The Alpharetta City Band offers instrumentalists a fun way to hone their playing skills while entertaining appreciative audiences throughout the year,” said Bill Haynes, who has conducted the group since 1999.
