Conductor Update
Our former conductor, Rebecca, has chosen to pursue other opportunities this summer and has resigned her position as conductor.  The board is currently seeking a new conductor. We will hold interviews at the end of February. We are seeking a person who will continue to improve everyone’s musicianship, and who will also help the band form a cohesive group to improve upon what we already do well and work on the areas we need help with. 

If you, or someone you know, may be interested in applying for the conductor position, please email a resume or CV to flagstaffcommunityband@gmail.com.  We will review all qualified applicants and make invitations for interviews with the board.
