Area musicians, including experienced high school students, are encouraged to become members of the River's Edge Community Band at any time, but now is an especially good time as the band has completed its holiday concert and is beginning to prepare for upcoming concerts in March and June. Regular rehearsals are held each Thursday night from 7 to 9 p.m. at Room C108 of Hudson High School.
