What is a Concert Band?

One rather broad definition of a concert band is:

a relatively large group of brass, woodwind, and percussion players that performs in a concert hall, as distinguished from a marching band.

Another way to convey the definition might be, a symphony without the string sections.

The repertoire of the Walnut Creek Concert Band spans the entire rich spectrum of band music from Gershwin and Copland to Sinatra, Sousa, John Williams and many more. Our concerts are presented either in the Dean Lesher Regional Center for the Arts, Civic Park or Rossmoor – all in Walnut Creek, California.
