The Band provides opportunities for our musicians to perform challenging band literature at the highest level for the enrichment of the membership and community.
Rehearsals are held once a week on Monday evenings from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM (2 1/2 hours). We perform four concerts between October and May in the beautiful Bailey Concert Hall. Here's our Rehearsal / Concert Schedule.
Membership is open to all college students and adults, with
instrumental experience, wishing to participate in a wind band ensemble.
Auditions may be required for placement within certain sections to
achieve a well balanced performing ensemble.
High School students are welcome to join the group, but must
commit to all rehearsals and concerts in order to earn Community Service Hours.
An audition (sightreading & scales) will be required of all new
members joining the group in the Fall of 2012. Those high school students
currently a member of the Broward Symphonic Band will not be required to
audition, except in cases to better place those individuals within certain
sections of the ensemble
