President, Rainn Setren

Originally from upstate New York, Rainn moved to Alaska in 2020 right before the Covid-19 pandemic. From piano and voice lessons early on in life, to the quintessential moment of picking her instrument in 5th grade, Rainn always had a love for music and music of all kinds! It didn’t matter what genre; if it had a melody or a catchy rhythm you could guarantee she’d be singing along. 
Over the years she has worked with local organizations and non profits to bring music back into her local communities. Groups such as The Weekend of Chamber music working along side distinctive flutist Judith Pearce, the Delaware Valley Opera Association, the Sullivan County Community Chorus and many others. 
Rainn is proud to play flute and piccolo with this incredible group of talented musicians. When she is not playing she can be spotted at the local hockey games or enjoying snuggles on the couch with her two dogs Bailey and Bernie! 

Vice-President, Erin Janoso

Erin has played trumpet with the Fairbanks Community Band since 2015. That was the summer she overheard someone talking about this thing called a ‘community band’ at the Ester 4th of July BBQ. She’d loved playing in band all the way through her school years and never meant to stop when she graduated…… She just hadn’t known about any playing opportunities that still existed. So when she found out there were no auditions to join this group, and that the band would even loan her a horn until she could retrieve hers from her parents’ basement in Virginia (where it’d been stashed, waiting, for 20 years…..), she never looked back. 
She loves playing now as much as she ever did while in school, and has also joined the UAF Wind Ensemble, and even North Star Strings, with her violin. Thursdays – Community Band rehearsal days -- remain her favorite day of the week though. So, if you’ve got an instrument that’s been stashed, waiting on you since your school days, come on out and join us. There’s nothing more fun than playing music with your friends!
