We are a level 4/5 band comprised of adult musicians whose professions may be outside of music, but we remain passionate about playing. The NOCB has a 10 month season that starts in September and runs through July. We require $50 membership dues, $25 for students. We rehearse every Tuesday at the University of New Orleans in the Performing Arts Center. Rehearsals are mandatory. All instrumental needs are ultimately decided upon by the conductor, Dr. Charles Taylor. If you are interested in joining the band, please email your request on our Contacts page.
