About Us!

The Parkville Symphonic Band is proud to announce our 24th 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: one or more clarinets, an oboe, a French horn, a baritone, a tuba, and one or more percussionists. Of course, other instruments are always welcome.

Next concert: We continue our 24th season with our Christmas concert to be presented on Tuesday, December 11, 2018 at 7:30 p.m., at the Pine Ridge Presbyterian Church on Barry Road, across from Park Hill High School. Music will feature Christmas music including many familiar and favorite songs and carols of the Christmas season, and an audience participation Christmas carol
sing-along. See our Next Concert page for more information on our upcoming concert repertoire.
