The ACB Recreational Band

In order to better serve our community, the Albuquerque Concert Band is supporting a second concert band that focuses more on the recreational musician. This group also provides an opportunity for musicians that cannot be accomodated in the current ACB due to size constraints.

This band meets for weekly rehearsals, but has a lighter performance schedule. If you are interested in joining this band, please send a brief email to ACB Recreational Band to indicate your interest, including your name, instrument, email address, and phone number.
