LAKE GEORGE - The Lake George Community Band begun their spring rehearsal schedule under new director and conductor Raymond Durkee.
In its eighth year of existence, the band rehearses on Thursday evenings in the Lake George High School band room from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Durkee said this week that new members are being sought to perform with the band, and he encourages anyone who plays a wind or percussion instrument to join the group.
Durkee is particularly looking for musicians who play clarinet, alto and bass clarinet, contrabass clarinet, string bass tuba, and baritone horn. Musicians interested in playing one of the low clarinet instruments can be assured that the instrument can generally be provided.
Those interested and can commit to the practice and performance schedule of the Lake George Community Band are urged to visit the group's website at www.lakegeorgecommunityband.com for contact information, or contact Durkee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
People are also welcome to stop by at a rehearsal to check out the group, Durkee said.
