September brings Prince Rupert's Musical community back together again, offering up a chance to get back in tune after a summer away from their instruments and repertoire.

The Prince Rupert Community Band meets on Monday evenings at the Peter Witherly Community Music Studio at Charles Hays Secondary on Prince Rupert Boulevard. 

Open to those at all skill levels, the band features members who have been playing for years and others that hadn't picked up an instrument in decades.

The Community Band operates as part of the Prince Rupert and Region Music Society with a minimal cost to participate at fifteen dollars a year plus a Society membership of 10 dollars, though they note that they can waive that fee for anyone in need.

As well, if you don't have an instrument of your own, they can help you find one to launch your jam session with Prince Rupert's popular program.

The Musical Director of the Community Band is the legendary Peter Witherly who has been helping Rupertites make music for many decades.

The first session comes up this Monday evening at CHSS starting at 7:30.

As they get back into the swing of things, updates on performances and other items of note can be found here.

More background on the Community Band and the Music Society can be found from their website and Facebook page.

You can contact President Zoe Zentner at 250-600-4556 or Secretary Dawn Quast at 250-624-6450 to find out more about the program.
