From its humble beginnings, with just thirteen eager recruits gathering in fall 2013, the Wellesley Town Band has grown to around fifty musicians. If you have ever played a brass, woodwind, or percussion instrument, there’s a chair, music stand, music and a warm welcome waiting for you in the Wellesley Town Band. Players of all ages (grade 8 up) are welcome, and no auditions are required. The band has a real family feel, with spouses, siblings, and parents and students, all playing together. The band would especially loved to be joined by some more saxophone, trumpet, horn, trombone, and percussion players.
In this special year, the band will once again be led by legendary Wellesley Schools Band Director, Henry Platt. Rehearsals are held in the Wellesley High School Band Room, Mondays 7pm-8:30pm, 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, movie music, and stirring marches.
Each year the band presents its popular Winter Concert in December and a Spring Concert in April. There are occasional additional gigs.
