The Sounds is a 100% volunteer organization. Several of our regular members have been with
the band for many years and others only a short while.
The regular membership consists of personnel who come from
many walks of life and have a wide range of musical training. We have members who are Engineers,
Accountants, Managers, Teachers, Fire Fighters, Sales people, Executives, business
owners, etc. etc. Formal musical
training ranges from college level to those who have played professionally.
Because people sometimes change jobs, move, quit playing,
or for some reason can no longer participate, it is not uncommon to have a few
openings every year.
This means; we welcome new musicians who have a level of
training to be able to sight read and play consistently at or above what might
be considered a college level and who have a desire to regularly rehearse and
possibly preform with the band. New players
are considered “substitute” musicians and remain as such until there is an
opening created by the loss of a regular member. We maintain a list of our “sub’s” and in
absence of a regular member, those who regularly rehearse with the band may be
called upon for performance.
