The Capitol Pops Concert Band is a fully instrumented band of volunteer musicians and workers. The band requires an evaluation of your musical abilities before you will be selected for membership. This is usually accomplished by inviting you to "sit in" and play when an "opening" occurs.
Costs to band members is $50 each year and $35 dollars for a concert shirt. The band meets on Thursday evenings, and our season runs from February to December.
