What started out as four friends reminiscing about all the fun times they had in band and how they missed playing music has grown into a dream come true. The Barnesville Community and Alumni Band has enjoyed a successful pep band season playing at most of the Barnesville High School Boys Basketball home games. They even played at the Barnesville Wrestling Invitational. The Barnesville Community Band’s mission is to encourage and support music appreciation in our community through supporting the Barnesville Band and Barnesville music programs. Members consist of adults ,as well as current band students, giving a variety of ages to the group. If you have music in your heart and have played an instrument (even if you haven’t played it for years, it all comes back to you) and you live in the community, you are welcome to come join us. We have a few members who are alumni from nearby schools and even a member who relocated to the community from the south. The Community and Alumni Band has been invited by Barnesville Band Director Sarah Cooper to play at the spring concert. Practices will begin on March 11th at 6 p.m. in the Barnesville High School Band room and continue every Tuesday until the concert.
