Here's the scoop on the CCB rehearsal times and location.  The typical Fall and Spring rehearsal time is Thursday nights from 7-9. See specific dates in the sidebar.

Rehearsals are held at Bloomington Junior High School (BHJS) in Bloomington, IL. The school is located on 901 Colton Ave, Bloomington, just east of Towanda Ave on Empire Street. See map on the left.

Summer rehearsals follow a different pattern: summer band rehearsals tentatively start the 2nd week in June with rehearsals and concerts every Tuesday/Thursday through July.  The summer rehearsal time is 6:30 to 8:30. In the summer we play new music every week! What fun!
