“A CHRISTMAS POPS”, Sunday, December 17, 2017, 5:00 pm


Join the fun and enjoy the sounds of the season as Conductor Michael Karpeichik and the Maynard Community Band (MCB) celebrate the band’s 28th annual “A Christmas Pops” holiday concert.

Sunday, December 17th – 5:00 pm Conductor Michael Karpeichik will lead the 45 piece Maynard Community Band in the main sanctuary of the former Union Congregational Church, 80 Main Street in downtown Maynard.

If you’re a returning fan, you’ll thrill to our time honored program for the young and young at heart.  Settle back and hear the musical sounds of the season.  Try to stay in your seats, though, for “Bugler’s Holiday” and our new rock and Latin Christmas rhythms of “Fum, Fum, Fum” and “We Wish You a Merry Mambo Christmas”.

Re-live familiar holiday stories, and join in with our own Mark Malcolm as he once again leads Maynard’s own, Childrens Kazoo Band.  Sing along with the band to great and bright winter classics like Rudolf and Silver Bells and , of course, weather permitting we may even get a visit from Santa himself.

This concert event always proves to be an entertaining and relaxing experience, and it’s FREE.  Come early, listen to a prelude performance on the buildings’ Hook and Hastings organ and stay for the main event as the MCB Holiday Concerts have become standing room only by downbeat time.

MCB provides an outlet for musicians of all ages, talents and backgrounds to come together for musical camaraderie.  Members from as far as Billerica, Dracut, Shrewsbury, Hudson, Framingham, Marlborough and beyond have found friends and musicianship within the ranks of the MCB.  If you’d like to join us or have any questions about us, please don’t hesitate to contact Mr. Michael Karpeichik, Conductor, 508-485-3171, (mkarp143@verizon.net).

See you at the Christmas Concert, Sunday, December 17th, former Union Congregational Church, Maynard

Bring your Instrument – Come to Play

Enjoy the Music and New Friends

If you’ve ever enjoyed playing an instrument, performing music in a 30-40 piece band, an ensemble of friends, you’ll want to consider this invitation to find the old instrument in your closet, clean it off, and join us, the Maynard Community Band (MCB).  Rekindle that old enjoyment.

The band has been performing FREE concerts to the local towns’ people every Wednesday from mid June into September for many years.  Over the recent winter months, the group has been rehearsing and preparing for our 2015 Summer Concert Series.  If interested, we cordially invite you to join us in rehearsal on Wednesday evenings from 6:45 to 8:45 pm the Fowler Middle School, 3 Tiger Drive, off of Route 117 (Great Road) in Maynard, MA.

At MCB you’ll play without audition in a relaxed setting without criticism. You do not need to feel that you have a high degree of expertise on your instrument, just your instrument and the ability to read music.  We especially need players on Flute, Clarinet, and Trumpet.   Here’s your opportunity to join other like-minded men and women, young and old, who find pleasure in making music and presenting it to others during our summer concert season.

MCB, a local volunteer organization established in 1947, entering its’ 68th year, with regional membership and a long and proud musical history is actively seeking musicians.  We are a fellowship of avocational musicians who enjoy ensemble playing as well as the social interaction and friendship that comes with participation in a group such as this.  For those interested in furthering an existing musical path, we have several experienced players who perform and lead other area combos and bands, and who actively mine the talents of MCB players for other musical venues.

Contact Michael , our conductor, at 508-485-3171 or email at mkarp143@verizon.net for more information. We are a very welcoming group, play a wide variety of both traditional and contemporary music and would love to have some additional members in our ensemble.
