Member Guidelines

DVD Sample

A Video has been made of the Concord Band's July 17, 2008, Concert at Fruitlands featuring Amanda Carr and the American Songbook. It is available as a standard DVD to members of the Concord Band, priced at $15 per copy. Please order via email to Dan Diamond, indicating your name and the number of copies you would like by September 9. If you have already ordered, you are all set, but additional copies may be ordered. DVD's will be delivered to a rehearsal in September and can be paid for at that time. Additional copies may be available — see Gina after the shipment arrives and those who have ordered pick up their copies. Think Holiday Gifts for family and friends.

A 5-minute sampler of the DVD is available on YouTube:

Email Lists

There are four email lists that have been created under the concordband.org domain:

cba-announce@concordband.org
This list is for announcements to the general public about band activities. You may join this list by following the instructions at the bottom of our Mailing List page.
cba-editors@concordband.org
This list is specifically for press releases that are intended for the editors of print and online publications. If you would like to be on this list, please contact Concord Band Publicity.
cba-members@concordband.org
This list is for the internal activities of the band. All band members with email addresses are subscribed to this list, and any band member may post a message to the list. Please use it sparingly, and only for information or requests that are truly relevant to the entire band. Messages must be text only — no attachments are allowed.
cba-board@concordband.org
This list is primarily for the business of the band board, but anyone inside or outside the band may use it to bring something to the attention of the board. Only board members and the band director are members of this list. Anyone may send messages to this list, but only list members can read them. Attachments are allowed.

Note: On 2007/1/8, changes were made to our hosting provider's email system that require list names to be unique across their entire server. This is why "cba-" was prepended to each of the list names.

Personal Email Alias

Note that every band member also has a personal "...@concordband.org" email address that forwards mail to their "real" email address. To find out what your email alias is, just visit the band roster page and click on the "email" link next to your name. Your real email address will never be disclosed to anyone outside the band without your explicit permission.

This forwarding mechanism has certain filters installed to resist the unsolicited messages from people who harvest email addresses from websites. Currently they are:

  • Any email in which the recipient's address does not appear in the To: or CC: fields of the header is discarded. This means that you cannot BCC: one of these addresses (a common spammer trick).
  • Any email with an executable attachment (characteristic of the Klez virus and friends) is discarded.
  • Any email that mentions the words "million" and "dollars" in that order is blocked. For some reason, the "African money scam" people have been particularly problematic.
More filters will be added as needed. Be sure to let the webmaster know if this service is being abused by spammers, etc. so that appropriate action can be taken.
