Planning for the AirVenture Concert Band is well under way, and conductor Elton Eisele is again looking for EAA members who play a musical instrument to perform in the ensemble's fifth annual concert during AirVenture 2011.
Here's your chance to become part of the world's only air show concert band!
Since the first band performed at AirVenture 2007, more than 150 different musicians have participated - from retired people to junior high students, former military band members, and those who had not picked up an instrument in 20 years.
Rehearsals are Tuesday and Wednesday mornings (July 26-27) at 8-9:30 at the Nature Center, and sheet music will be sent well ahead of time so members can practice. The concert is scheduled for 6:45-7:30 p.m. at Theater in the Woods on Wednesday.
Sign-up is through Saturday, May 14; visit the AirVenture Concert Band's Facebook page, or go directly to the sign-up site here.
