Has it been a while since you picked up that instrument of yours?
How many times have you thought ‘I must get back playing’?
Want to join the band but can’t commit to weekly rehearsals?
In Autumn 2021, Mullingar Town Band launched their Community Adult Concert Band.
The aim for this ensemble is to encourage adult musicians of varying standards to join together to play music, learn, socialise and have fun.
This group meets every 2 weeks, on Wednesday nights 7.15-9.30pm.
