Joining the band:

The Highline Community Symphonic Band is made up of amateur and semi-professional musicians from all walks of life. We are a non-auditioned band, but we are proud of our standard of performance and we welcome any musician to the group with a desire to work, collaborate and improve their playing.

A few things about becoming a member you should know:

1. Our organization is sustained by grants from local and regional organizations, and member dues. Dues are $40 per quarter ($110 for the year) and with that you will be given a music folder to use for the year. If you are a high school or college student, your dues are waived. 

2. We welcome players of all ability levels, but the general level of music that we perform is of a high school/junior college level. If you are able to play music of that ability level, you will fit right in!

3. If you are a music educator (or a teacher of another subject) you might be eligible to receive clock hours through the Washington Music Educators Association. Please inquire about this at rehearsal if you are interested.

We rehearse on Monday evenings from 7:15 to 9:15 at Mt. Rainier High School in Des Moines, WA. (directions). Our rehearsal schedule is located here, so you can check and see if our rehearsals and performances fit within your schedule. If you are interested in joining the Highline Band, you are invited to come to a rehearsal and sit in with us. If you are planning on come checking us out, please email the director (dan.kexel@gmail.com) so we know you are coming.

Thank you for your interest in the Highline Band! Please let me know if you have any questions.

Dan Kexel - Highline Band Director
