Need to Fill a Few Chairs!

The OCB kicked off the Fall 2017 Season in fine fashion last night. Sight reading got us through all but one of the ten pieces for the October 11, 2017 Fall Concert (7:30PM in the Jackson Theater of the Smith Center for the Performing Arts on the Ohlone College Fremont Campus).

With over 90% of the members returning, and several new members coming on board, we still have a handful of openings to fill in order to once again present our audiences with that amazing OCB sound.

We are currently looking for:
1 Flute
1 Oboe
1 or 2 Bassoons
2 Trumpets
1 Mallet Keyboards
1 Concert Percussion

We can always seat more Bb Clarinets. And we might be able to add an additional Trombone and maybe an additional Euphonium.

If interested – Please contact Dan Smith at:  dansmith@ohlone.edu
