The new Rogers State University Basketball Band is seeking members for the upcoming basketball season.
“We have a wonderful core of musicians and we’ve started to make some really good music. However, we need to fill in some instrumental gaps in the band,” said Joe Cernuto, band director. “We especially need trumpets, trombones, baritones, saxophones and drummers.”
The band will perform at all RSU men’s and women’s home basketball games at the Claremore Expo Center and may travel to post-season tournaments.
The band is open to any RSU student, qualified high school student or community member. There is no cost to be a member of the band, and selected instruments will be provided, Cernuto said.
Those interested are invited to the next rehearsal of the band from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27, in room 102 of Baird Hall on the Claremore campus. Regular rehearsals will be held on Thursday evenings.
For more information on the band, including rehearsal and performance schedules, contact Cernuto at (918) 343-7723 or at [email protected].
