Bloomington Community Band at Meadowood, June 28, 2021
The Bloomington Community Band is a volunteer concert band comprised of 50 to 60 musicians at any one time with ages ranging from 18 to 85. Any adult who plays a band instrument may enter the BCB’s membership process without auditioning. The band presents 15 to 20 concerts per year in and around Monroe County at civic events, public gatherings, retirement homes and state parks. In recent years, the BCB has also participated in community band festivals in Terre Haute and Greenwood. Since the BCB’s 1978 revival, hundreds of musicians have participated in the band’s weekly rehearsals and concert programs.
