The Columbia Community Concert Band was founded in 1981. We are an all-volunteer, adult, nonprofit organization that has grown from 14 members at its initial rehearsal to its present size of over 80 musicians. The band presents an average of six concerts each season, which runs from September until June. We play a pretty wide range of music, and you can view our performance history, beginning with the 2005-2006 season.
Band members come from all walks of life, representing a full gamut of occupations. Though very few are professional musicians, the majority were members of their all-state bands in high school, and many performed in college or military bands. Our membership directory lists our members, their hometowns, and their occupations.
The band has performed for the South Carolina Music Educators Association three times and has also performed for national conventions of the American School Band Directors Association and the Association of Concert Bands. The band also performs yearly at the Piccolo Spoleto Festival in Charleston, SC.
The Columbia Community Concert Band is a member of the Cultural Council of Richland and Lexington Counties and the Association of Concert Bands, Inc. and is partially funded through grants from the Cultural Council and the South Carolina Arts Commission.
