The Kincardine Community Concert Band would love to have new members join our team! We are a fun, inviting musical group who are proud of promoting music and community involvement in Kincardine and the surrounding areas. We encourage students who are participating in an elementary school music programme (either in the classroom or as an extra-curricular activity) , or who already participate in or would like to participate in a secondary school music programme, adults who use to play an instrument way back when, or youth and adults who would like to learn how to play an instrument in their spare time or retirement. We are accepting of all levels of ability who have the desire and willingness to learn through trial and error, improving practice by practice. Members must be able to provide their own instrument – KCCB can suggest the possibility of renting or renting to own. One or two of us may even have a spare instrument or two just waiting to be picked up and played! Please do not be shy – give us a try!
