January is a great time to join Cochrane Music Society! We are starting new music for the Spring Session and would love to have you attend a few rehearsals to meet us, play or sing with us, and get a feel for the level of music.
Rehearsals for the Spring Session begin:
Choir: Tuesday, January 8
Concert Band and Jazz Band: Wednesday, January 9
Joining in January: Fees are one-half the full season fee.
For the directors to develop the musical ability of the ensembles, and for all to enjoy the group experience, membership requires your personal commitment to practice at home and attend as many rehearsals and concerts as possible.
- Choral Waves 7:00 – 8:45 pm
- Band on the Bow 7:00 – 8:40 pm
Riverside Jazz 8:50 – 10:30pm
All rehearsals take place at Bow Valley High School in Cochrane (about 20 minutes from the edge of Calgary).
All bands and choir fees for 2018-2019 are $300 for a single ensemble,
with a cascading fee structure for multiple ensembles.
Joining in September: Fees must be paid in full in September (one current or 1/2 current + 1/2 postdated cheque to January 2, 2018).
Joining in January: Fees are one-half the full season fee
Fees are used to fund the directors, accompanist, clinicians, music, insurance, venues and some instruments. The operation of the society is handled entirely by volunteers. Each member is expected to contribute time to some of the many tasks that make the organization function effectively for all.
Here is the current member registration form.
