RSU Invites Area Musicians to Participate in New Concert Band

Rogers State University is putting out a call to area musicians to join the new RSU Concert Band.

The concert band, which will include RSU student, faculty and staff, is open to all members of the community. Dr. Kirk Weller, RSU director of bands, hopes for enthusiastic support from high school musicians as well as from other members of the community.

"This is fantastic opportunity for us to build an ensemble that includes everyone from high schoolers to mature musicians who have a great time playing a variety of band music," he said.

Concert band rehearsals are held each Thursday from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. at the Old Student Union on RSU's Claremore Campus.

RSU also continues to invite community members to participate in the RSU Jazz Ensemble, which rehearses on Mondays, and the RSU University Choir, which rehearses on Tuesdays. Both are held from 6:00 to 8:45 p.m. in the Old Student Union.
