During "Normal" seasons (and currently) we rehearse at the Homer Senior High School band room from 7:00pm to 9:00pm most Thursday evenings - usually from March through October. On occasion we will rehearse at the Homer Junior High School if there is a conflict. Please check our schedule page for the latest updates on rehearsals and rehearsal locations.

During COVID seasons, we have also rehearsed at the Cortlandville Municipal Garage for a more "open air" experience. Again, we highly recommend that you bookmark our schedule page for rehearsal updates, which we hope to post as soon as possible. If you are interested in joining the band, please contact our Director, Nick Pauldine.

SETUP/WARMUP: Members are requested to arrive 15 minutes early to help assist in chair/music stand arrangements, location of music folders, and to allow sufficient instrument warm up to permit accurate band tuning.

REHEARSAL PROTOCOL: Rehearsal time is generally at a premium, but should be fun and promote good times among the band membership. However, please be respectful when the Conductor is talking to assure that his instructions are heard throughout the band.

MUSIC FOLDERS: Members are permitted to borrow music folders and must sign them out at the end of the rehearsal in a sign-out book in the music storage box. Members must find a way to return borrowed folders to the next rehearsal, even if not attending the rehearsal. Each music folder represents several hundred dollars in investment, and therefore your diligent effort is required to protect and secure it while in your possession.

ANNOUNCEMENTS: Announcements are usually given verbally at the podium during rehearsal breaks. Occasionally, written handouts are distributed during or after rehearsal.

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.
