The Maynard Community Band, a local volunteer organization established in 1947, entering its 66th year, with regional membership and a long and proud musical history is actively seeking musicians who enjoy ensemble playing as well as the social interaction and friendship that comes with participation in a group such as this.
Since 1947 the band has been performing FREE concerts to the local towns’ people every Wednesday throughout the summer months. One of the longest, if not THE longest tradition the town can claim. With an updated mix of material, the members give back their musical gift of talent to the town of Maynard.
If you play a band instrument (brass, woodwind or percussion) we would cordially invite you to join us in rehearsal on Wednesday evenings (check the schedule).
You do not need to feel that you have a high degree of expertise on your instrument, just the ability to read music and the desire to join other like-minded men and women, young and old, who find pleasure in making music and presenting it to others during our concert season. We especially encourage brass and woodwind players (tuba, sax and clarinet) to consider joining us, but would welcome all other band instrumentalists as well.
Band members, alumni, and fans can now find the
Maynard Community Band on Facebook.
