The DMC Ambassadors is a weekly beginner band for adults. This band is an ideal opportunity for adults who have no prior experience playing an instrument – particularly those who wish they had the chance earlier in life and would like to make up for lost time by starting now in a friendly, group setting.
This group is also comprised of musicians who played years ago and would like to get back into it…AND…musicians who want to pick up another instrument. We have a violist now playing trumpet, and a vocalist on oboe!
The Ambassadors represent the DMC in an outreach program each season. They visit nursing homes, senior centers, hospice, schools, etc. to spread the joy of music.
Adults starting a wind, brass, or percussion instrument for the first time, will meet each Tuesday at 10:00 am for new members and at 11:00 am for returning members. Albert Montecalvo will lead the ensemble in weekly rehearsals at the Danbury Music Centre, 256 Main Street, Danbury, CT, 06810.
Director Albert Montecalvo says, “It will be a very relaxed atmosphere where people can come in, give it a try, and see how it works for them. We will offer all of the band instruments: flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, any of the saxophones; trumpet, trombone, French horn, baritone horn, tuba, percussion.”
Rehearsals: Tuesdays, 10:00 – 1:00pm, The Ambassadors Pro
Tuition is $250.00 for the semester (September through December). Students will need to rent or purchase an instrument, as well as the book Essential Elements Comprehensive Band Method, Book 1, published by Hal Leonard.
