Are you interested in joining the group?

If you are an advanced musician and interested in becoming a member of our Band, or interested in knowing more about us, we would welcome the opportunity to speak with you.

Some background information for you and for our conversation before we can move forward.

  1. There must be a need for your instrument. We strive for a balanced sound and instrumentation. We do need to replace members or seek substitutions from time to time, so please contact us.
  2. There is no audition, but we do evaluate everyone's ability and they are placed on a "provisional" status before becoming officially seated.
  3. Section placement is determined ultimately by the Music Director.
  4. Prospective musicians need to be comfortable performing at a NYS Grade 5 music level. Our concert music is selected from Grades 4 - 6 music categories.
  5. Prospective musicians need to understand that we do rehearse and perform throughout the year, with concerts scheduled accordingly. Attendance is importance for our success.
  6. We are an adult, all volunteer community music organization, and we do allow talented High School musicians.

Before arriving at a rehearsal, to listen or perform, we ask that you contact our Personnel Coordinator, who can assist you with introductions, and answer any of your questions. Currently, the Personnel Coordinator, and BNCB Vice President, is Mr. Paul Furlong. He can be reached via email (info@bncb.org).

Please include your name, the best manner for contacting you, your instrument, and some of your music history. Please include "BNCB Music Participation" in your email heading.
