Monday Night Band

For players from 3 to 50 years of experience, the Monday Night Band is a traditional concert band which performs at music levels of 3 and 4, the level of most high school bands. Sitting at approximately 50 in number, many members in this group got their start in high school bands and have decided to become involved with music once again. The Monday Night Band is an opportunity for musicians to reconnect with their musical abilities and perform their passion as a part of the Red Deer Community Band Society.
