Cooley Middle School

Please contact us by email and let us know what instrument(s) you play and your performance experience level (i.e., high school, college, etc.)

Who May Join
Membership in the band is open to all musicians (regardless of age, sex, race, religion, etc.) that are able to perform on their instrument at a skill level matching that of the majority of the current members. Sufficient skill level will be determined by the Music Director. Potential new members are asked to come “sit in” (play with the group) for one to two rehearsals after which the candidate may be required to have a short audition with the Music Director and appropriate section leader to confirm the candidate’s skill level.

Where Do We Rehearse?
Rehearsals are held at Chilton Middle School (4501 Bob Doyle Dr. in Roseville - see map on the right) on Thursday evenings from September through July 4th. We meet in the band room located directly behind the bus circle. Rehearsals begin promptly at 7:00 p.m. and finish at 9:00 p.m. For special circumstances rehearsals may occasionally last past 9:00 p.m. Most members arrive 10-15 minutes early to allow time for set up and warm up.

Membership Dues
Annual membership dues help cover many of the band’s costs (ASCAP/BMI performance licensing, liability insurance, facilities rental, sheet music, supplies, etc.)

  • $70 Individual membership
  • $55 Student membership
  • $110 Family membership (2 or more)

Member dues can be paid by cash, check or online via PayPal at

Member Expectations

All Members must complete a Membership Form and agree to fulfill all the responsibilities of membership set forth in the RCCB Handbook and the RCCB Bylaws.

ATTENDANCE: A commitment to attend rehearsals and performances is essential. One of RCCB's primary goals is to provide an exceptional musical experience for its members and audiences. Dependable attendance from all members is one of the key factors in providing an environment where members enjoy performing and audiences enjoy attending. Therefore, the RCCB asks all members to ensure that Thursday evening rehearsals and all RCCB performance dates receive top priority in members’ schedules. Keeping absences to the absolute minimum is the expectation for all members.
