The Instrumentation

The Little Big Band

The current Serenaders band is comprised of ten instrumentalists in three sections:  reeds (woodwinds), brass, and rhythm.  Depending on the event, we sometimes add a vocalist or configure a smaller band.  

The Sections

The Reeds

The woodwind section is comprised of an alto sax, a tenor sax, and a baritone sax. When an arrangement calls for clarinet or flute, one or more of the woodwind section play that instrument.
