Consider Joining the Crookston Community Band and/or UMC Band

Welcome back to a new school year and another opportunity for new beginnings.  Faculty members George French and TJ Chapman have plans to revive the Crookston Community Band in conjunction with the UMC Band. Anyone interested in participating in this experience is invited to join the group for rehearsal on Monday evenings from 7 p.m. to  8:30 p.m. in Kiehle 236, the music rehearsal room on the UMC campus.  Rehearsals will begin Monday September 9.  All are welcome!  So if you have an instrument sitting somewhere that you have been thinking about getting out again, this is the perfect opportunity.  Even if you don't have an instrument anymore, we can help you find one, and we may even have one for you to use.  Please feel free to spread the word of this opportunity to those with potential interest in the greater Crookston community.  Repertoire for the semester will include marches, patriotic and holiday selections, as well as original concert band literature.  Please feel free to contact TJ Chapman ( or 218-281-8343) with questions or for further information.
