Our Seasons and Repertoire
The Long Beach Community Band typically prepares two programs per year (spring and fall) in which we perform traditional concert repertoire consisting of orchestral transcriptions and compositions for wind ensemble.
During the summer season we perform popular music for audiences in Long Beach parks, usually in conjunction with activities provided by Long Beach Department of Parks, Recreation, and Marine.
We also perform a few Christmas concerts each year, and our patriotic repertoire is used for Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Veterans’ Day, and other civic events that come up from time to time.
In order to prepare this diversity of music we rehearse nearly every Thursday evening of the year, from 7:00 to 9:30 PM at the Long Beach Senior Center, pausing only for major holidays.
We always welcome enthusiastic musicians to join us. If you are looking for the chance to make music with a group of motivated musicians look no further! Let us know you're coming and we'll save a chair for you!
