Information for Marshall Rotary Band Musicians

Website Updates

New information about the upcoming summer season will start appearing on this website in December.

Band Rehearsals

 Rehearsals for the 2019 summer season will be held in the Marshall High School band room. Park in the north Madison parking lot next to Marshall High School. Rehearsal dates are posted on the "2019 Concerts" page of this website.
Our hometown public school band directors are now associate band managers for Marshall Rotary Band, and they are in charge of music selection, folder stuffing , and facility preparations for rehearsals.Your Rotary Band Board of Directors and Band President are still in charge of everything else including scheduling, featured musicians, program bulletins, advertising, special music, conductors and announcers, finances, band shell, website, and policies.

Warm-up Night

No Warm-up Night for the 2019 season is scheduled.

 Band Rain Policy

No concert has ever been cancelled prior to 7:00 PM. That is because, even if it is raining in the afternoon, it is usually not raining at 7:00 PM.

If there is a down-pour at 7 PM with no hope of clearing, then the concert will be cancelled. An inside alternative location is not feasible, since relocation would be too complicated and untimely.

If we start a concert, we will try to finish it if there is no lightning or tornado.

Concert Clean-up

  At the conclusion of each band shell concert, each musician is responsible for placing a folded chair and music stand on a storage cart. Leave your music folder on the music stand or put it in the music folder box .

Board Meeting

The Marshall Rotary Band Board of Directors has an official meeting every February to discuss preparations for the summer season.

Featured Ensemble Rehearsals

  Planning for solos and featured ensembles begins in January. If you are a member of a featured ensemble for a concert, then you automatically have a rehearsal with the other members of your group at 6:30 P.M. in an ajoining room to the band room on the Monday of that concert. week (immediately prior to the first band rehearsal for that concert). Please remind the other members of your ensemble to come early to that first rehearsal.
