Auditions and Rehearsals

To maintain balanced instrumentation and high-quality performances,  we periodically hold auditions for musicians when there are vacancies. The secretary will place individuals who wish to join the Bangor Band in a section that does not have a vacancy on a waiting list and notify them when an opening arises.

We generally hold open rehearsals to fill vacancies in mid-September, January, and May, when each rehearsal continuum begins.

We anticipate our next round of vacancies to include:

  • Oboe (1 position)
  • Clarinet (2 positions: One on clarinet 2, one on clarinet 3)
  • Horn (1 position)
  • Baritone Saxophone (1 position)
  • Tuba (1-2 positions)

If you have questions regarding the audition procedure, please contact our President, Susan McKay, for more details.

Sue can be reached by email at


Rehearsals are held every Tuesday evening from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. on the University of Maine campus in the Class of 1944 Hall, Room 100.
