Our concert band in northern NJ, near the border of Rockland County, is seeking new members! We welcome all ages and skill levels, trumpets, lower brass, french horn, and percussion.
The Saddle River Valley Concert Band has been in existence since 1972. Rehearsals are every Wednesday evening from 8:00-10:00 at the Cavallini Middle School on West Saddle River RD in Upper Saddle River, NJ (just north of Lake Street).
The band hot-line with up to date concert and rehearsal information is (201)818-1081. We have an extensive music library of over 500 arrangements which include marches, show tunes, classical pieces and just about every concert band staple piece you can think of.
We have about 15-20 concerts per year which include playing at town or school concert series, graduations, tree-lightings or just about any place where people will listen to us. The band consists of about 40 musicians. A few are music teachers and professional musicians but most of us are 9-5ers that do something else for our day job. There are no try outs so just come in, introduce yourself to our conductor Harley Streiff and grab a library folder to read off. If you're interested in becoming a member we'll make a folder for you in the weeks to follow. There are also some openings on our board if you wish to give an hour or two a month.
Hope this gives you enough info about the band and hopefully we'll see you there in the weeks to come.
