Pandemic Status Update: Out of an abundance of caution, our Board has decided to suspend rehearsals and performances through the end of January. We are monitoring the situation with the health of our members in mind, under the guidance of our public health official in residence. We plan to resume rehearsals on Tuesday, February 1st. Follow the website or our Facebook page for the latest info. Please click here for our full COVID-19 protocol.
NOTE: New members & folks who missed rehearsal, please plan to arrive early to the next one so Gail can give you your music. She will be wearing a name tag and will be happy to assist you. 7:00 pm for sections with unison parts & 7:15 pm for sections with 2 or 3 parts. Section leaders will assign parts to ensure balanced sections.
About the Clay County Community Band
From our founding in 1989 to being declared the official band of Clay County in 2007 and beyond, the Clay County Community Band has continued to develop and expand upon its two fold mission:
First, to provide an arena for local musicians to come together to share in the joy of music making, and to develop their talents in both rehearsal and performance;
Second, to serve our community by performing concerts for pure entertainment, for commemorating holidays, and for charitable fundraising.
In the early years, the Band performed two or three concerts a year. Now we average eight concerts a year, encompassing all of Clay County in our venues.
In the past, the Band has featured well-known guest artists such as Roy McCance on clarinet and UNF Professor Dr. Marc Dickman on euphonium.
In 2008, the Band premiered "Sesquicentennial March and Song" composed especially for our band by Roy McCance and words by Kathy Marsh, to celebrate Clay County's 150th birthday.
We continue to build our repertoire of music, serve the community through many different performances avenues, and build collegial relationships with musicians of all ages and from all walks of life. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you would like to join the band or if you would like the band to play at your event!
