Jean Flaherty is entering her seventh year teaching music in Albemarle County, and last year, she started a concert band for Albemarle County school and local government employees. The band rehearses during the school year on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Burley Middle School (901 Rose Hill Drive, Charlottesville). Rehearsals this year begin Tuesday, August 29!
The band is open to people of all ability levels and performance experiences who are interested in making music together. If you played in band during middle school, high school, or college, please consider joining. If you need an instrument to use, let Jean know, and she’ll try to help you locate one. Even if you’ve never played an instrument before, but always wanted to learn, let Jean know and she’ll do her best to help you get started.
