Group looking to form a community band

(Continued)

Woodward, Okla. — A BAND FOR THE COMMUNITY

Nuse said he is excited about forming the community band because "I really think there's a need for it in the community and I think there's a lot of people in the area who would enjoy being a part of it."

But he believes the Woodward Area Community Band will not only be beneficial for area musicians who get a chance to play again as part of the band, but also for the community itself.

"It's a good thing for the community to have people come together and be involved with something within their community," he said.

The band will also be a way to build a sense of community among the band members, he said.

"As Woodward and the area grows it's easier not to know who your neighbors are," Nuse said.  "But this way people get to know other people who they may not normally run into in other parts of their lives."

The band will also be a positive addition to the community, he said, as it will provide another avenue of entertainment for area residents.

"We're looking at maybe doing concerts throughout the year whether that's performances at the Arts Theatre or at Crystal Beach Park, we'll just see what people are interested in doing," he said.

Anyone with questions or who would like more information about the Woodward Area Community Band can contact Nuse via his Facebook page.

He said organizers are also in the process of creating a Facebook page for the band itself.

"Even if they're not able to attend the informational session, hopefully with the Facebook page and this article we'll get the word out that we're here and get people interested and we can continue to grow," Nuse said.
