If you have played in a school band before, whether recently or a while back, and you think you would like to get back to blowing that old horn that’s just collecting dust, why not give the Williams Lake Community Band a try, says conductor Michael Butterfield.
The band will be starting another new season, beginning Thursday, Sept. 15, with practices every Thursday evening from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Williams Lake Secondary School band room.
“If you are unsure, you can come out and hear them practice before making a decision,” Butterfield says.
“This group has fun.
“It is a great place to socialize with other musicians within the community, and the music they play varies from pop-rock to classical, to movie soundtracks to jazz and country/western.”
The band performs at various times of the year, including Remembrance Day, Christmas, spring/summer concerts, and the famous Williams Lake Stampede Parade.
Butterfield has more than 35 years of experience in the business of teaching and leading community music groups.
He would love to meet you.
