Our members are quite diverse, from professional players to accomplished amateurs. We typically rehearse every Tuesday evening from 7:15 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. (unless it is a performance week).Rehearsals are held in the Julia D. Good Rehearsal Hall, 1924 Melody Lane, Melbourne, FL 32902. The rehearsal hall is directly behind the Melbourne Municipal Auditorium. Enter from Fee Avenue, next to the library.
If you are interested in playing with the Melbourne Municipal Concert Band, please email You will be contacted by the section leader who will give you further instructions. We expect our players to have a minimum skill level. The section leader will determine if your skills are adequate to play with the band.

If you don’t think you are ready to play the more-advanced music that the Melbourne Municipal Band plays, then the New Horizons Band might be the right place for you. The New Horizons Band plays easier music with a bit of music instruction at the beginning of the rehearsal. The band rehearses in our rehearsal hall every Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. To join the New Horizons Band, come to the rehearsal with your instrument. There are no tryouts. The band is directed by Rene Hulsker. For more information about the New Horizons Band contact Bob Comer at 347-497-0506 or e-mail: .
