The StillCan Band, offered as part of the Creative Aging program at CMSS, is a beginner concert band for adults aged 55 and up. This ensemble is a great way to explore a new instrument or dig deeper into a woodwind, brass, or percussion instrument you already play. The positive, social rehearsals offer opportunities to learn alongside, and practice playing with other beginning musicians with little-to-no formal music training. The StillCan Band will be led this year by Zach Robarge, a woodwinds teacher at CMSS. Zach has experience in many different types of classical and jazz ensembles, and is excited to work with the group on the music that is most interesting to all the participants!
