BAND ORGANIZATION
  Non-profit status by-laws dated 3/8/2021
  Band member’s Member Handbook dated 2/16/2018 (previously called “Policies and Procedures Manual”)

UnFortunately, Lake Wildwood has cancelled the September 5th Picnic Concert. We will not be playing.

 

Fortunately, Although our season isn’t ending as planned, we believe it’s been successful.  Three concerts with ten rehearsals beats last year’s record of three rehearsals; and most important- the time we spent together playing our instruments made a difference in our summer of 2021!

 

UnFortunatelyBand business continues as usual.  Music folders need to be collected as soon as possible - we will use the drop-off system we used last year. Drop off locations will be sent separately. 

 

Fortunately, Thank You Everyone for supporting your Board of Directors. Tim Proffitt will join the board in December as we say ado and thank you to Michelle for her service.  

 

Respectfully,

 

Sincerely, 

Joelle Lake
Michelle Daniels
Mary Rose Preston
Kirsti Powell

The Nevada County Concert Band will begin the return to an abbreviated concert season in just TWO weeks.  We will first meet JUNE 14th, and then continue on Monday evenings, 6:30-9pm, (length of time may vary) at the Band Shell in Pioneer Park.  We are all looking forward to an enjoyable, safe start. Cheryl Woldseth is busily selecting music for our shortened, but rigorous season.

It has been the position of the Board to follow CDC restrictions and recommendations throughout COVID pandemic.  We intend to follow the current CDC guidelines, keeping in mind that these guidelines are a moving target.  We believe that each person is responsible for his/her own safety, and well-being.  We will do our part to be informed regarding CDC guidelines; and we ask that you plan to do your part to make NCCB a fun and safe place for all. We will contact members through email with any last minute updates, so check your email before heading to the park each week.
