The Wellesley Town Band is an authentic, all-American Town Band. Players from grade 8 and upwards are welcome, and there are no auditions required. If you have ever played a brass, woodwind, or percussion instrument, the Wellesley Town Band needs you. The first rehearsal of Season 7 is Monday, September 9, 2019, 7pm – 8:30pm in the Wellesley High School band room.
The Band is led by legendary Wellesley schools band director Henry Platt. Rehearsals are held every Monday September through mid-June (excluding school holidays). There is always a friendly, supportive, and enjoyable atmosphere of making music together. The repertoire is traditional concert band fare: light classics, favorite show tunes, and stirring marches.
Besides the Winter Concert in December, and a Spring concert in April, the Band performs outdoors for MassHort’s Gardeners’ Fair at Elm Bank, and at the Summertime Concert series at Wellesley Town Hall in June.
The Band is administered through the Wellesley Recreation Department, and supported by a membership fee of $175 per year for thirty-one 90-minute rehearsals and four concert performances. Please Note: Anyone interested in joining the band is encouraged, and welcome, to come along to any rehearsal to try it out. Mid-year registrations are welcome, with a reduced price.
