Merrimac’s musically inclined residents are invited to try out for the Merrimack Valley Concert Band. Rather than requiring an audition to join, the music director simply makes an informal assessment of your musical skill level to assess your ability to play as part of the band.
The band’s 40-plus members range in age from 12 to 90 years, representing many levels of musical ability and experience. The Merrimack Valley Concert Band is a community concert band based in Haverhill, and holds rehearsals every Tuesday from 7-9:15 p.m. in Room 103 of the Technology Center at Northern Essex Community College, 100 Elliott St., Haverhill. Musicians of all ages are welcome, but those under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. For more information on joining the MVC Band, send a note to email@example.com.
