Thompson Community Band open for new members looking to join

If you’re an adult who misses the days of playing an instrument in your school band or  jamming with your friends, consider joining Thompson’s Community Band.

They play at a number of events around the city, including the Remembrance Day Service and throughout the Christmas season.

Here is Kevin Lewis, the director of the community band.

“We would invite you to join us, this is the start of our 17th season and it’s going to start on Tuesday, September 19th. Normally, we are in our band room but because of construction, we are actually going to be downstairs in the Letkemann Theatre and we will likely be there for the first few months. Those not familiar with the school, just come in the front doors and, once again, there will be signs pointing in the right direction. Rehearsals run every Tuesday between 6:30 and 8:00pm.”

New members should contact Lewis ahead of time to make sure the instruments and music needed will be on hand.

Go to RDPARKERMUSIC.COM for more about the community band and other music programs.

You can also listen to Lewis this afternoon on Thompson Today at 12:40 and 5:10.
