Musician Roster

The Ringgold Band is comprised of part-time, freelance musicians residing in the Reading
(Berks County), PA area. If you live in southeastern Pennsylvania and would like to join,
please contact us. If you are a high school or college student, we welcome you to sit in
on our rehearsals, too! After all, young people represent the future of our organization.
We’d love to hear from you! We rehearse Monday evenings from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at our
rehearsal hall in Laureldale.
