Village Band (All ages)
All instruments, ages, and levels welcome! Pull that instrument out of the closet, the attic, or the basement and start playing! Village Band is a friendly, welcoming group that plays all sorts of music including light classical, Americana, pop, klezmer, and world folk music (anything from a tarantella to an Irish jig to a Turkish dance). We have open enrollment and encourage everyone to join us - whether you are picking up your instrument for the first time in years, or have never stopped playing and are looking for a fun challenge. Also open to younger people who are looking for a different kind of ensemble experience. Almost any instrument can join: winds, brass, strings, and hand drums welcome (including guitar, mandolin, bass, and piano). To learn more or to enroll, submit the inquiry form below and the instructor will contact you to answer any questions.
