If you have ever past a brass, woodwind, or percussion instrument, there's a chair, music, a music stand, and a warm welcome waiting for you in the Wellesley Town Band! Players of all ages (Grade 8 upwards) and musical abilities are welcome, no auditions are required. The Band has a real family feel, with spouses, and parents and students, all playing together.

Now starting its sixth season, the Band is led by legendary Wellesley schools band director Henry Platt. Rehearsals are held in the High School band room on Mondays 7-8:30 pm from September through mid-June (excluding school holidays). There is always a friendly, supportive, and enjoyable atmosphere of making music together. The repertoire is traditional concert band fare: light classics, favorite show tunes, and stirring marches.

Each year the Band presents its popular Winter Concert in December and a Spring Concert in May. It also performs outdoors for MassHort’s Gardeners’ Fair at Elm Bank in May, and the Summertime Concert series at Town Hall in June.

Cost is $150 for thirty-two 90-minute rehearsals (Sept. 17 – June 17) and four concert performances (the Rec. Department's biggest bargain!). Please Note: Anyone interested in joining the band is encouraged, and welcome, to come along to any rehearsal to try it out. Mid-year registrations are welcome, with a reduced price.
