Municipal Band of Charlottesville

91st Summer Concert Series!

The Municipal Band of Charlottesville, Virginia, was organized on August 21, 1922. Over the years membership has grown from the original thirty men to about ninety men and women of all ages and professions. The Band performs six concerts at The Paramount during the summer season every year. All concerts are open to the public at no charge, the Band’s gift of music to the City and County which generously support it. Every concert includes a variety of marches, classical transcriptions, Broadway show tunes, folk music, contemporary works, light opera and hits from the big band era.
