Band rehearsals and concerts/events are now scheduled. Band members who are fully vaccinated are invited to attend; those who are not vaccinated are not allowed to attend. "Fully vaccinated" means it has been at least two weeks since you received both doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or the single dose vaccine from Johnson & Johnson. The State of Vermont still requires masks when not playing and limits us to 30 members at a rehearsal. Please read the Vermont Guidance for more information.
The St. Johnsbury Band calendar for 2021 is shown below. All rehearsals and scheduled performances are listed. The Band rehearses in the community room of the Caledonia Courthouse (1126 Main Street, St. Johnsbury) on Monday evenings at 6:30pm. The entrance is off the parking lot on the east side of the courthouse (access the parking lot from Eastern Avenue). Take the elevator to the second floor and enter the community room. You can't miss us!
Our traditional Monday evening concerts are performed in the bandstand just outside of the courthouse in the park. These concerts are at 7:30pm and start in June and continue into August.
Band Members: In the event that a summer Monday evening concert is cancelled due to inclement weather, the Band will rehearse from 6:30pm - 8:30pm.
If you would like to schedule us for your event, please contact us by email
