Yadkin Valley Community Band to start up

RONDA — The Yadkin Valley Community Band is comprised of musicians who are in many different walks of life. The musicians range from high school students, to music educators, professionals, and community members. Anyone who can play a band instrument is invited to join regardless of level of experience.

The band has a great time relaxing one night a week while making beautiful music together. The group is excited to welcome its new director, Melanie Hudson, for the 2016 season. Hudson has great music selected for the group this year and the musicians are anxious to get started.

Rehearsals will be at East Wilkes High School on select Thursdays from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The group will rehearse for 10 weeks and then perform for the community on April 7 at 7 p.m. in the Dixon Auditorium at Elkin High School. The rehearsals are scheduled for the following dates: Jan. 21, Feb. 4, 11, 18, 25, and March 10, 17, 24.

Weather/cancellation policy: If Wilkes County Schools is closed due to bad weather, the rehearsal for that night will be cancelled. There will be no make-up rehearsals scheduled, so if this happens practice extra at home that week.
