Asheville Community Band - Home

The Asheville Community Band has wrapped up a terrific Fall and Holiday season. Two Fall concerts this year proved challenging and exciting for the band. Audience response was enthusiastic to say the least! Thank you to all who attended. The band's performance in Winston-Salem for the NC Music Educators Conference was a major highlight with the premier of "Noir Fantasy" by Alan Theisen, a member of the band's saxophone section and professor of music at Mars Hill University. [alantheisen.com] This dramatic work for wind band will be performed again at the band's Spring concert so our local friends and family have the opportunity to hear it as well.

The bell choir of First Baptist Church of Asheville joined the band for their holiday concert in December. It is a tradition for the Asheville Community Band to share the stage with other local musical groups to celebrate the holiday season. They were a delightful addition to our program!

Now the band begins preparations for their Spring and Summer concerts. College scholarship applications are being received and recipients of those awards will be honored at the March program. We invite you to join us, March 23, 2014 at 3:00pm in the Asheville High School Auditorium which is handicapped accessible. Tickets are $8 and will be available at the door. Children and students are FREE.
