YORKTON - The Yorkton Community Bands' will embark on a new season Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the band room at the Yorkton Regional High School. 

Band conductor Larry Pearen explained the band operates over what he termed semesters, the fall semester ending with its Christmas concert. 

The spring semester starts Tuesday with the band readying for spring engagements concluding with the finale Sunday, May 14. 

The band has 55 musicians on its roster, with “45 very regular,” offered Pearen, adding it is very much a regional group with participants from Esterhazy, Melville, Kamsack and Sturgis/Preeceville. 

While stating the band “blessed” having musicians across all sections of the band, with excellent players taking lead positions, new players are always welcome. 

Those interested in playing with the band can show up Tuesday evening, or they can contact Pearen at 306-621-0523 or at larry.pearen@gmail.com
