Albuquerque Concert Band is starting a new recreational concert band

In order to better serve our community, the Albuquerque Concert Band is preparing to start a second concert band that will focus more on the recreational musician. This will also provide an opportunity for musicians that cannot be accomodated in the current ACB due to size constraints.

In particular, this new band will focus more on recreational playing and have a lighter performance schedule. We have not yet determined the rehearsal schedule or conductor, but we are gathering names of players that would be interested in joining this band; please send a brief email to ACB Recreational Band Info to indicate your interest, including your name, instrument, email address, and phone number. We will contact you as more information becomes available.
