MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS

Membership in the Cortland Old Timers Band is open to all Cortland-area musicians. New members of the band are welcome, although membership is limited to maintain proper instrumental balance.

Playing in the band is considered a privilege that entails responsibility, dedication, maturity, and enthusiasm for making music with other musicians of similar spirit and interest.

Prospective members should talk to any band officer or contact Conductor/Music Director Ed O'Rourke about joining the band. After assessment of the band's current section openings, and the prospective member’s musical background, the prospective members will be contacted to enable an appropriate placement within the band, if warranted. Former members who wish to return to the band after an extended absence should also contact the Conductor/Music Director.

There are no fees or dues requirements for applying for band membership.

Applicants shall be evaluated for membership as follows:

Regular adult members (over the age of 18) should be able to provide some information about their experience and training. They should be able to play with a characteristic tone and have sufficient technical skills to perform the band's repertoire. They must be able to attend performances and rehearsals on a regular basis. ("Snowbirds" are welcome to participate in the band when they are in the area.)

College student members are welcome to play with the band when they are in the area. They should be able to play with a characteristic tone and have sufficient technical skills to perform the band's repertoire. They must be able to attend performances and rehearsals on a regular basis while they are in the area.

Student members (under the age of 18) are also welcome to participate in the band. They should have sufficient skills to perform music of at least NYSSMA level 3, and should be recommended by their school or private music teacher. They must be able to attend performances and rehearsals on a regular basis. Student members should be members of their school performing ensemble if there is one in the school.

The Cortland Old Timers Band is an equal-opportunity organization. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, gender, national origin, religion, marital status, age, disability, or sexual orientation. This nondiscrimination policy applies to the eligibility for membership and all benefits entitled by membership in the organization.
