Have you heard of or seen the open band at Portland Intown Contra Dance? Have you thought maybe that you’d like to play your instrument for dancers, but weren’t sure how to get a place on the stage?

Here’s your chance to get involved.

 

Open Band Night - December 20, 2018

Piano - Neil Pearlman

Fiddle - Clara Stickney

Fearless Leader - Emily Troll

Other Instruments - YOU!

 

In an open band, everyone is welcome!

Seriously.

The goal is simply to have fun playing together for dancers. If you’ve been playing fiddle for two days, come and saw away on your D string. If you’re a more experienced player, come share your music with the community. A good time is guaranteed for all. 

A great open band has a diverse array of instruments. Fearless Leader, Emily Troll, would especially love to recruit some trombone and trumpet players, so please spread the word, even to your friends who don’t dance yet. Think outside the box.

And for those folks wanting a little preparation, we will have a practice party to get ready the week before, time TBA. 

So are you in? If so, please email Emily at etroll@wesleyan.edu for more information.
