The Lake Effect Concert Band is an all-volunteer community concert band. The goals of the band include providing enjoyable, lifelong learning opportunities for community musicians, and affordable, entertaining concert experiences for audiences of all ages. The band performs a wide variety of music from classics to pops. The band is directed by Greg Hillis.
The band rehearses year round in 4 to 6 week sessions with one or more concerts at the end of each session. Rehearsals are typically on Monday evenings from 7:00-9:15.
The band is open to community musicians of all ages able to play at least at a high school level. Musicians are accepted based on the band’s personnel needs and logistical requirements. Any person who is interested in playing with the band must contact the Director before attending a rehearsal to discuss their musical background and vacancies in the section. New musicians may be asked to wait until the beginning of the next session before joining. Sections that are full will have a waiting/substitute list.
