Welcome new band members!

We welcome a number of new band members in our trumpet, clarinet,
trombone, saxophone, french horn, baritone, and string bass
sections. Several of the new members are from the Charlottesville
area, so there is a developing "car pool" for folks driving to
practice and concerts from central Virginia.

At the present time, we are strongly recruiting new members in our
flute, clarinet, and percussion sections. New members are welcome in
every section at any time. Besides the concert band, opportunities
exist for participation in our small ensembles.

Be sure to check the "band schedule" section of the band web site for
various ensemble performances, ensemble rehearsals, and the concert
band schedule.

Welcome, new assistant director

It is with great pleasure that I welcome Frank Sampson as assistant director of the Stonewall Brigade Band.  Frank is band director at Rockbridge County High School in Lexington Virginia and is a former drum major with the James Madison University Marching Royal Dukes.  Frank will be sharing the conducting duties on the band's 2007 Christmas Concert to be held on Monday, December 17, at St. Paul's United Methodist Church, Staunton.
