Ann Arbor Concert Band

The Ann Arbor Concert Band began as a fledgling organization called the Ann Arbor Symphony Band. The band was born out of the desire of many local, non-professional, adult musicians to continue playing, to provide public performances with broad audience appeal, to foster interest in amateur music performances and to provide continuing music education to its members and the public. Its 65+ members are mainly from the Ann Arbor area, but also travel from communities such as Saline, Dexter, Brighton, Jackson and Ohio to share their love of music and performing.
