A Community Band For Music Lovers

Founded in 1987, The Greater Columbus Concert Band is composed of about 50 instrumentalists from various backgrounds who share a common love for practicing and performing band music.

The band repertoire includes music in almost every style including dixieland, jazz, marches, show tunes, patriotic, holiday, classic works and many more.

Music is the social act of communication among people, a gesture of friendship, the strongest there is.
- Sir Malcolm Arnold
