This is an 'all call' for your participation with the Basketball Pep Band.  From December 21st - January 19th, we are inviting Maryland Band Alumni to bring your instruments and perform with the Maryland Pep Band for all Men's and Women's Basketball home games.  This window is for a limited time – only until January 19th – so take advantage!

Conductor & Musicians Wanted for Washington Metro Gamer Symphony Orchestra

Are you a gamer? Do you get an adrenaline rush when you hear the music from your favorite game? Then how would you like to play the music from your favorite game?

Some of the founding members of UMD’s Gamer Symphony Orchestra have (finally) aged out of the group, and are putting together an ensemble to continue the mission at the community level. The Washington Metro Gamer Symphony Orchestra is officially incorporated, and ready to start rehearsals in July.

But they need one important thing. A Conductor! They’re able to offer a small stipend at the start, and there is the potential for growth as the ensemble matures. See more information and review the application.

They have approximately 50 musicians to start, but will gladly welcome more. Rehearsals will start this July in Rockville. More information about membership.

NO STROLLERS ALLOWED IN THE BABY BRIGADE

Alumni Band - we will not be allowed to bring in the strollers through the tunnel this year, but we'd like to keep the Baby portion at the back of the band.  We are working on it.  If you have an idea for the little ones, please email us at president@umbao.org

Community Band Concert April 4 at CSPAC - All Welcome

On Wednesday evening, April 4 at 8:00 PM, the MARYLAND COMMUNITY BAND will present a concert with the U of MD University Band in the Dekelboum Concert Hall of the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center on campus in College Park.  Each group will present about 35 minutes of music on this annual free and open to the public concert.  I am extremely proud of the 75-member MCB for their hard work and amazing progress over the years.  Being able to present a program with this level of difficulty is proof of their dedication and love for performing great music.  Last year many of you were able to attend when we presented Emerson Head and the trumpet trio and I hope you can be with us again this year.
