Zoom Rehearsals with the BCB


After extensive review of public health advice, directives regarding COVID-19,

and available information regarding COVID-19 and playing musical instruments,

the BCB Executive Committee made a decision to hold Tuesday evening rehearsals

using internet Zoom conferencing.


Musical Director, Lance Besharah, conducts in-person rehearsals of a small

“Demonstration Band” - volunteer BCB members - under a strict risk mitigation protocol.


The rehearsals are live-streamed to other BCB members using Zoom.

The rehearsals feel and sound similar to typical rehearsals -

Zoom participants see and hear the conductor with the Demonstration Band,

while playing along (with their audio muted).

There are opportunities to comment and to ask questions.


Rehearsals begin Tuesday evenings at 7:00 pm

and follow a 30 min. play / 8 min. break (X3) schedule.


Zoom participants should begin to connect at 6:50 pm.

Late-comers will be admitted between selections.
