Rouge River Winds

We are a group of enthusiastic musicians, who get together once a week to enjoy an evening making music with friends. Founded in the fall of 2010, our band has experienced rapid growth since its establishment. Our membership consists of a widely diverse group of many ages ranging from high school students to adult musicians. The various repertoire performed by our ensemble caters to many. Auditions are held primarily at the beginning of each term, but we are open to accepting musicians at any point throughout the year.

Rehearsals

Our rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings, from 7:30 to 9:30 PM, at Woburn Collegiate Institute in room MUSIC100. Use entrance 11D. We begin playing promptly 7:30, so please make sure you are able to arrive at 7:15, with your instrument assembled and warmed up by the time rehearsals begin.

Commitment

At present, the band runs in “terms” of four month intervals. We ask that you ensure you are able to commit to an entire term before auditioning. We audition new members at the beginning of each term — in September, January, and May.

Membership Fees

The ensemble charges a membership fee of $150 each year in order to cover the cost of the rehearsal space, purchasing music, and our general operation. We are able to make accommodations for members with financial concerns.
