Joining PWCB

We are always looking for adult musicians! 

The Prince William Community Band welcomes new members regardless of the instrument played.  No auditions required.  The instruments most needed at this time are:

  • Bassoon

  • Bass Clarinet

  • Oboe

  • Trombone

  • Trumpet

  • String Bass


Eligibility Requirements

If you are an adult (over the age of 18) and have your own symphonic instrument, please join us for rehearsals and concerts. We are dedicated to playing symphonic band music in a relaxed atmosphere. Our band members are all volunteers who play for the sheer enjoyment of music!

Because the high schools and middle schools have active music programs for their students, our organization is for adults over the age of 18. However, we occasionally have opportunities for high school students. If you are a high school student who wishes to play with us, you must have your band director's approval, as well as the approval of our conductor. If you need more information or want to audition for our conductor, please email us.


Band dues of $40.00 are collected annually or when you join the band. If you wish to purchase a PWCB polo shirt, the cost is $18.50 - $22.00, depending on size. This is an optional purchase.


Band members must complete a member information form and give it to our Personnel Manager. Everyone must also sign our Music Folder Policy agreement and give it to Greg Alfonso, our Librarian, before taking music from the band room.


You need your own instrument in good playing condition. We provide percussion instruments. We also recommend that you have your own music stand and stand light which are needed at certain concert venues.


The PWCB performs free concerts at various locations in Prince William County, Virginia. We frequently play at the Harris Pavilion in Manassas, and various high schools around the county. Please check this web site often for all of our concert announcements.

You should find all of the information you need in these web pages. If you need more details, please email us at:
