Bassoon needed

The Montgomery Village Community Band, in Montgomery Village, MD, desperately needs bassoons. We haven't had any for a couple of years. You don't have to live in Montgomery Village, or even in Montgomery County, to play in the band. During non-rush-hour, it's only 20-25 minutes from VA, and less than 15 minutes north of the Beltway. (Montgomery Village is, in effect, North Gaithersburg.) We have members from everywhere from Baltimore County, to Pennsylvania near Frederick and Hagerstown, to DC, to VA.

Our conductor is Dr. Gordon Bowie, who is also a composer, and who is a terrific music director. Band dues are extremely modest: $20 per year. We play about 9 concerts a year, including some of the largest retirement communities in the country on a regular basis. Rehearsals are Wednesday nights from 7:30 to 9:30, and the next rehearsal is on September 20. (It's that late because we played all through August, and did a concert at Leisure World at the end of August, so we have a couple of weeks off for our "summer" break.)

If you can, please pass this message along to people who are in the right geographic area and might be interested. Interested parties can email me at mvcband at yahoo dot com. Thanks!
