JACB Fall 2017 Concert Season Starts Soon!

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to the desire of many of our members to observe the August 21st Solar Eclipse with their families, the August 21st Symphonic Winds rehearsal has been moved to September 4th. All other information below is still accurate.

The JACB Fall Concert Season begins at 6:30 PM on August 14th with Swing Orchestra rehearsal and at 6:30 PM on September 4th for the first Symphonic Winds rehearsal. All rehearsals are held on Mondays at 6:30 PM at Jennings Hall Music Room on the Union University campus. The Symphonic Winds concert band rehearses on the 1st and 3rd Mondays and the Swing Orchestra rehearses on the 2nd and 4th Mondays.

Since the meeting on August 21st has been cancelled, we will conduct the annual elections via e-mail. All JACB members stay tuned. The offices considered for election this year are Vice-President, Treasurer, and Band representatives to the Board. Members of both bands are encouraged to register your votes.

If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail John McVey at john.l.mcvey@gmail.com, Dr. Joshua Veltman at joshua.veltman@gmail.com, or David Kyles at trumpet1@charter.net.
