About Us!

The Parkville Symphonic Band is proud to announce our 23rd season.

We are proud to be a part of the tradition of community bands, and we hope you will join with us as we celebrate our part in carrying on America's musical heritage. If you are a listener, we hope you will attend our concerts and discover the joy band music has to offer.

The band performs four to six concerts each year, with two or more serving as fund raising events for various Northland charities. Park University graciously provides our home base, with rehearsals and most concerts being held in the beautiful Graham Tyler Memorial Chapel. All Parkville Symphonic Band concerts are free and open to the public.

We perform music ranging from Concert Band standards and symphonic orchestra transcriptions to show tunes and big band jazz. We work hard, but the mood is always light and friendly.

Anyone who enjoys making music and who plays a band instrument is welcome to Join Us! (see link above). The Parkville Symphonic Band is made up of amateur and professional musicians of all ages, and welcomes anyone who plays (or played) a band instrument. Rehearsals are from 7:15 to 9:00 p.m. each Tuesday evening. The Parkville Symphonic Band gratefully acknowledges Park University's generous support in providing use of the Chapel for our rehearsals and concerts.

The band is currently in need of the following instruments: clarinets, saxophones (tenor, alto and baritone) and one or more percussionists. Of course, other instruments are always welcome.

Next concert-  We continue our 23rd season with our next concert to be presented on Sunday, April 8, 2018 at 3:00 p.m., at the Graham Tyler Memorial Chapel on the Park University Parkville campus. The band will perform a variety of selections featuring the Roman Carnival Overture by Hector Berlioz, the concert band classic, Festivo by Vaclav Nelheybel, and a trip down memory lane with classic movie themes in Hooray for Hollywood, arranged by Warren Barker, and more!
