Hurrah!  Monday, May 31, 2021 is a chance to play as a band again!
Come and join us at New Berlin’s Memorial Day ceremony

The New Berlin Community Band has again been asked to participate.

Please arrive at 10:00am at the Highland Park Cemetery at 14875 W. Greenfield Ave. (across from a Pick N Save and east of Walmart).  Follow the road to the right to barricades in the back section.) 
Wear concert black.  Park along the sides of the road.  Bring your instrument, stand and clothespins to keep music from blowing away. Chairs will be provided, along with music, and bottled water.  An awning will provide cover.  

We’ll run through several selected patriotic tunes from the black book at 10:15, and then start to play for the audience at 10:45.  The 11:00am service should be done by noon!
This is subject to change via the Mayor!

 

ALSO:  Please bring along your sheet music from last spring for “Hurrah Last Gallop” from Hartford City Band. There are still over a dozen parts in our member’s possession!
We’re Looking forward to seeing you!!

Your NBCB Board of Directors


 

The band has grown in many ways since its inception in 1999. Since 2016, The West Performing Arts Center, 18695 West Cleveland Avenue, has been the New Berlin Community Band’s performance venue. The band welcomes the opportunity to perform in a true concert setting. The band has grown musically under the baton of past directors Lansing Dimon, Jay Huenink and Dr. Nick Contorno, the founding director. NBCB remains associated as a nonprofit organization with the East Troy Community Band under Jay Huenink’s direction. A yearly scholarship awarded to a local high school band student is the latest expansion of the band’s community outreach.

In addition to formal concerts, the band makes community service appearances throughout the year. Veteran’s Day, Memorial, Day, and Patriotic Citizens’ Day are three of these New Berlin civic activities along with the Christmas and 4th of July parades down National Avenue. Concerts given at area senior living communities are also part of the band’s community outreach mission.

The band consists of approximately 40 volunteer, adult instrumentalists from throughout southeastern Wisconsin. The band rehearses at Hoeppner Horn Bros. VFW 17980 W Beloit Road in New Berlin on Monday’s 7-8:30pm Sept through June (starting September 9th.) New musicians are always welcome. No audition required. Follow the band on Facebook.
