The Township of Union Municipal Band is seeking new members to join the band. “Musicians of all ages are welcome,” says director Howard Toplansky. “If you are a high school musician looking for extra practice or a retired professional who wants to get back into music, the municipal band is a perfect fit.” The band is looking for new members who play any instrument, however there is an immediate need for low brass, woodwinds and percussion.
The Township of Union Municipal Band rehearses on Monday evenings at Hannah Caldwell School. The band performs ten concerts throughout the year, including special concerts at Ehrhart Gardens and Putnam Manor.
Mr. Toplansky believes the municipal band contributes to the culture of the township, sharing that “the municipal band is one of Union’s oldest traditions and is a great way to introduce members of the community to time-honored musical styles and compositions.”
Musicians who are interested in joining the band should contact the Township of Union Recreation Department at 908-686-4200.
