Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been rehearsing outdoors, and will continue for the next few rehearsals, weather permitting. When we return to
indoor rehearsals at the middle school, the board has come up with the following list of ways to keep us safe while rehearsing indoors:
1. Vaccination is highly recommended
2. Spread out as much as possible
3. Wear a mask when not playing, or a mask that can be used while playing. Percussion can mask up the entire time.
4. Using a bell cover is highly recommended; they are not expensive and can be bought online.
5. Bring a rag or newspaper to put on the floor by your chair to pick up condensation from your horn
6. If you feel at all ill, stay home
7. Rehearsals will be shortened a bit - 7:15 to 8:30. Be prepared to play at 7:15.
Fridley City Band
is a community band based in Fridley but with members from, and enjoying engagements in,
many surrounding cities. We welcome players of any band instrument to join us for cameraderie and making great music.
We also have a "band within a band", the Old Time Band, that plays polkas, waltzes, schottisches and more.
The next concerts are:
