The Tar River Community Band is comprised of doctors, lawyers, scientist, college professors, housewives, retirees and many other varied occupations of all ages over 18 years, and all levels of musical ability. Formed in 1978, members perform as often as they can for their own enjoyment and the joy of entertaining others.
Each year, the band opens Greenville’s popular Sunday in the Park series. They also provide music for the Greenville-Pitt County Senior Games’ opening ceremony and have performed in other various venues around Pitt County. Money raised from the annual Pops Concert helps defray expenses and supports local community activities.
Citizens from across Pitt County are invited to join the Band even if they haven’t picked up an instrument since high school. New members have been amazed at how quickly those fingerings return. The band rehearses each Thursday evening at C.M. Eppes Middle School at 7:15 PM. For further information, contact Pitt County Community Schools and Recreation at 252-902-1975.
