20 Days to Spring 2020 Downbeat!

Happy New Year OCB & Friends!

Time to get the Band back together! Season Opener is Wednesday, January 22, 2020 “On the Hill” at Ohlone College in Fremont California. Downbeat is 7:30PM (with end of rehearsal 9:30PM).

We are getting ready to move into our New Band Room (Room 2317), located in the New Building 2 (just south of the Smith Center on the Fremont Campus). I will post route maps to help get you from the Campus Parking to the 3rd Floor of Bldg 2 just as soon as the Parking Lot reconstruction is completed adjacent to the Smith Center. The South Parking Garage is probably still your best bet for now.

With the move-in still not complete – there is a strong possibility that we will rehearse in TV Studio B (SC-144) one or two more times before we get to enjoy the high ceiling and no more curtains in Room 2317. Watch This Space (and check your emails & our Facebooks pages).

See you All Soon!

  • Dan S.
