Community Volunteers Offered Free Training by the JC Concert Band

As the JC Concert Band begins its exciting new season of fantastic community music making, several new openings exist for non-musical, non-performing volunteers, complete with free training.

Lincoln Park, NJ, September 17, 2009 --( The JC Concert Band is a fabulous group of volunteer musicians who dedicate considerable time, energy and effort into sharing their gift of music with others. Through an exciting annual concert series the band outreaches to members of the community who might not otherwise step inside a church environment, and by encouraging chapel members to invite friends, neighbors and family to each of our events. The band sometimes plays for Sunday services at the Lincoln Park campus, and usually participate in major events such as the Christmas Cantata, Easter Sunday, and the Chapel Picnic, but at every occasion, including Monday evening rehearsals, new opportunities are available for both musicians and non-musicians to enhance their community involvement, improve many transferable skills, and develop a whole network of new friends. Consider all the options listed below, or call us discuss how your special skill set might compliment the band's vision.
