The Camden Community Concert Band (CCCB) will kick off their 2014-2015 concert season with its first practice on Monday, Sept. 8. The CCCB, starting its 35th season under new conductor William J. “B.J.” Brazier Jr. and assisted by Robert Wertz, is open to anyone who plays or has played a musical instrument in the past. The band needs to add players in all sections of the band, but especially percussion. No auditions are required and the rehearsal atmosphere is informal.
Brazier is a retired U.S. Army bandmaster, and is currently a senior Army instructor/tactical officer for the JROTC program at Camden Military Academy.
The band rehearses on Monday nights at 7 p.m. at the Camden High School band room and has four scheduled concerts for the coming season. The concert dates are Oct. 26 at Rectory Square, Dec. 7 at the Camden High School Performing Arts Center, March 8, 2015, at the Camden High School Performing Arts Center and May 3, 2015, at Rectory Square. All concerts are performed on Sunday afternoons at 3 p.m. and are free to the public.
The Camden Community Concert Band is an affiliate organization with the Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County.
