AUBURN — Rehearsals for the Auburn Community Concert Band holiday concert season will begin on Wednesday, Sept. 14., from 7 to 9 p.m. at the High Street Congregational Church, located between High and Pleasant Streets, in Auburn.

 The band has a particular need for additional people who play flute, clarinet, bass clarinet, alto sax, tenor sax, French horn, or tuba. Percussion players who can read music are also welcomed. Membership requires minimum conflicts with the group’s weekly schedule of Wednesday evening rehearsals and concerts. Members must also have their own instruments.

The group’s annual holiday concert is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 21, at the Franco Center in Lewiston. Other Wednesday evening performances are also planned for earlier in the month.

The ACCB has 39 members, from age 16 to 90. These members collectively represent 12 Maine towns. “Although people are often nervous when they first join us because of the lapse of time since they last practiced, most players regain their instrumental skills relatively quickly,” Director Milt Simon said.

Simon added that prospective members, who are unable to participate in a minimum of two rehearsals during September, will have a second opportunity to join the band during January, the group’s open-membership month.

 The concert band is celebrating its 35th season. The organization was founded by Simon back in 1981. For more information, interested musicians should call band director Simon at 782-3917, or visit the band’s website at www.auburncommunityband.com.
