To accommodate the band for a concert requires a minimum
of 600 sq. ft. with
good overhead lighting and about 65 chairs. At least 16 of the chairs should be without arms.
Note to band members: About 3 more chairs are usually setup for rehearsals (e.g. 4 rows: 11, 17, 16 and 24 = 68 chairs total)
Since most band members arrive by car, it will be appreciated if you let us know
whether there is (or should be) adequate parking space at the concert venue.
Most band members would be grateful for something to drink after playing the concert,
(e.g. water, juice, lemonade, tea or coffee) if this is not too much trouble.
An announcer's microphone is useful.
When playing at privately operated locations (as opposed to hospitals)
we can accept donations to offset the cost of
the band's rehearsal space rental and music purchases.
The band will be pleased to issue receipts for income tax purposes
since we are a registered non-profit organization.
Please make cheques payable to: "Ottawa Community Concert Band, Inc."
Note that all donations, although gladly accepted, are entirely voluntary.
