State College Municipal Band

July 13, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

The band was formed in 1976 with a group of approximately 80 amateur and semi-professional band members to perform at the Arts Festival. Preforming four free indoor concerts per year, the band’s repertoire ranges from pop songs to standard band classics, including overtures, transcriptions, and marches.

This is the first Festival performance where the band is under the baton of its new conductor Dr. Darrin Thornton.  Longtime conductor Dr. Ned C. Deihl retired after the band’s Mothers’ Day concert.

Both occasional concert-goers and community band aficionados agree that The State College Municipal Band is among the best community bands in the country.
