Music: A Lifetime Journey

Meet Elizabeth Chambers

I joined the Community Band in 2012, when I was in eighth grade. Most of what I remember about those first rehearsals, sitting between tubist Ron and euphonium Don and getting their names mixed up, was how I got lost reading most of the music and how my mother, a French horn player, thought rehearsals ended too late at night for a thirteen-year-old. Nevertheless, I persisted through the challenging music and intimidating (from my view) roomful of strangers.

Over time, I was able to keep up more often than I fell behind. JHCB pushed me to improve my skills on the trombone, and to always strive to hit that high note, and the next, until before you know it, you have the range of a semi-professional player! Practicing and performing alongside community musicians for the last five years has made me the musician I am today, from technical skills to music theory.

A roomful of strangers became a roomful of friends of all ages. Beyond volunteerism, being part of the band has shown me the enormous value of being part of a tight-knit community of people who love music as much as I do. More than a place to be on Thursday nights, I am truly grateful for the real community the band represents. I intend to play with my family and friends in the community band for years to come.

Keep the music alive!
