The Plymouth Concert Band was established in 1998 to enhance the sense of community of the City of Plymouth through classic and contemporary concert band music. The group strongly emphasizes quality through its direction, musical literature, commitment of the players, and rehearsal requirements.
The Band is composed of over 55 members from Plymouth and the surrounding communities. We all share in one thing, our love of music and the desire to bring the arts to the citizens of Plymouth. The band is very fortunate to have a cooperative effort between the Plymouth Fine Arts Council, members of Plymouth City staff and government, local school districts as well as local musicians and educators.
Joining the Plymouth Concert Band
The Plymouth Concert Band is always looking for new musicians who share our love of concert band music and the desire to bring it to the community. All adults interested in playing with the group are encouraged to attend a rehearsal. If the player is interested in joining the group after attending a rehearsal, he/she will be asked to play an audition for the conductor. The music for the audition will be provided by the PCB in advance of the audition to allow adequate preparation."
The band rehearses every Monday night from 7:00 to 9:00PM at the Wayzata High School band room.
If you are interested in joining the group please contact our music director.
