The Cradle of Liberty is starting a Council Scout
Band. The band is open to registered scouts, Venture
and Varsity scouts, and Scouters age 14 and up. The
band would meet periodically to rehearse in
preparation to play at scouting and community
events. Musicians would need to play at a high school
level or better. The band is not intended to compete
with any scouts’s home unit. Additionally, there is a
need for adults who play and can help with
organizational duties. We are planning our first
rehearsal in May.
If you are interested, please send an email to the
