Yampa Valley Community Band starts practice Oct. 5
The first rehearsal of the Yampa Valley Community Band is from 7 to 9 p.m. Oct. 5 at Steamboat Springs Middle School. The group will be open to all musicians who have some level of playing experience and will rehearse from 7 to 9 p.m. Mondays, band organizer Mark Rasmussen said.
There is no cost to join the band, and there are no auditions. Yampa Valley Community Band is open to students and to residents of any part of the Yampa Valley, Rasmussen said. The group is in its planning stages, but Rasmussen said the band could play a holiday concert depending on how rehearsals go.
