Back in Action with Beethoven and Bernstein

Posted on by on January 14th, 2020 | Comments Off on Back in Action with Beethoven and Bernstein

The Bloomfield Civic Band resumed rehearsals this week and is getting ready for a spring concert on Sunday, April 19, 2020. The concert will feature music of Ludwig van Beethoven, who was born 250 years ago, and Leonard Bernstein, whose centennial celebration concluded just a few months ago. Save the date for a 3:00 p.m. concert at the Bloomfield Middle School in Bloomfield, New Jersey.

If you are a concert band musician looking for a place to hone your skills and play some great music, consider joining us for a Monday evening rehearsal.* You may find yourself sitting alongside a professional musician who played two gigs the weekend before, a talented amateur with decades of community band experience, or a dedicated and gifted student musician. We welcome musicians of all skill levels in all sections!
