Community Band looking for musicians


By Susy Mekeal | Pagosa Springs Instrumental Society

The Pagosa Springs Community Band is looking for instrumental musicians.

One of the hidden gems in Pagosa Springs is the Community Band. The band is a wonderful opportunity to dust off your instrument and get your chops in shape. It is also a great way to meet some new people with a passion for music. The band gathers three times a year for a concert, and our fall concert is just around the corner.

The first rehearsal for the Community Band fall concert will be Sunday, Oct. 2, from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Pagosa Springs High School band room. 

The remaining rehearsals will be Saturday, Oct. 8, from 2 to 4 p.m.; Oct. 15 from 2 to 4 p.m.; Oct. 23 from 2 to 4 p.m.; Oct. 30 from 5 to 7 p.m.; and Nov. 6 from 2 to 4 p.m. A dress rehearsal will be held on Nov. 11 from 6 to 8 p.m. 

The concert will be Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. 

We welcome newcomers and those who have played with us in the past for a fun time of making music.

The Community Band is a part of the Pagosa Springs Instrumental Music Society. The purpose of this group is to support student musicians in Pagosa Springs through music opportunities, scholarships and financial support to the schools. The Community Band also demonstrates that playing a musical instrument is a lifelong skill that lifts the spirit, enhances the community and brings people together. Come join us and support our belief that music is for life.
