COMMUNITY BAND OF SOUTHEAST TEXAS
Invitation to Join/Perform
The members of the Community Band of Southeast Texas (CBSETX) extend a cordial invitation for you to join our local community concert band and help us improve the quality of life and culture of this area with the gift of music. We are a dedicated group of amateur and semi-professional musicians who feel that the joy of making music doesn’t have to stop after school is over. We provide excellent music at area venues in support of all types of programs and ceremonies. We feel that your experience with music events in the past was some of the most positive times in your lives and want to offer you the chance to relive those great accomplishments through performances with our organization.
We meet each Thursday evening from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm to rehearse. Our rehearsal room is located in a meeting room in the gymnasium of Pine Forest Baptist Church at 4800 North Main; Vidor, TX 77662. Dues are currently not collected so membership is free. Each member is expected to provide their own instrument. All music is provided. Our band uniform is either khaki or black pants with white shirt. Our community service is all volunteer so students who need community service credit can accomplish it with us. Currently we have openings in all sections but our most incomplete sections are: Saxophone (All), Percussion and Clarinets. We have no section limits at this time so all are welcomed!
Those of us who have been with the band for some time have found that membership is very enjoyable and rewarding. We are confident that you, too, will enjoy this affiliation. We hope you will join us in our efforts and enjoy our fellowship.
Special Note: We are scheduled to perform a commemoration ceremony aboard the USS Texas on December 3rd!!! Our first performance of the year will be on November 13th at the VFW Post on Highway 87 in Orange, TX. We are also working on locking in Christmas performances. Dates and Times will be announced once they are confirmed.
We are a non-profit 501.3c organization. Look for our page on Facebook and join it so you can stay up to date on our engagements! Hope to see you soon at our rehearsals!
Very Musically Yours, Arthur D. Ferris Director, CBSETX email@example.com
