The Concert Band has been a fixture in the Sacramento area since 1957 supplying a positive experience for young musicians in the capital city. The band practices and performs a diverse selection of music. The ensemble covers literature from various areas including, but not limited to: standard wind band literature, contemporary, entertainment medleys, marches, and classical arrangements for wind band.
The Concert Band is under the direction of Jeremy Hammond, who is also the music director at Sam Brannan Middle School for Sacramento City Unified School District.
The group has performed at venues such as Santa Cruz, Disneyland, Six Flag’s Magic Kingdom, San Francisco Union Square, the Reno Rodeo Parade, Grass Valley Constitution Parade, Carmichael 4th of July Parade, and other venues throughout the greater Sacramento area and California.
The Sacramento Youth Band welcomes musicians ages 10-21 at any rehearsal, come sit in at a rehearsal and see what it’s like, yes you can bring your instrument on the very first night! If you’re interested there is an informal audition to place you in an appropriate level chair. If you would like to join, but are not quite comfortable in a full band setting, or it’s been a while since you played, or even if you want to learn a new instrument; we do have an entry level program (Group Lessons & Junior Band) to refresh your memory or teach it anew.
Beginning 11/6/11: The Concert Band rehearsals are held on Monday evenings from 7:00-8:30pm all year round; including the summer months, at:
Sam Brannan Middle School
