The Glenview Concert Band is a community band comprised of volunteer adults throughout the Chicagoland area. Founded in 1985, the band is based in Glenview, Illinois, and performs concerts at a variety of venues around the northshore and the northwest suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. The Band is an adult leisure time activity sponsored by the Glenview Park District.
Our members have diverse backgrounds and careers. While some are professional musicians, most find us a welcome place to continue their love of playing their instruments. We play many genres of music: classical, contemporary, and popular.
Join the Band!
The Glenview Concert Band is open to all area adults. Auditions are not necessary, but the music we play is not for beginners. To join, visit us during one of our rehearsals. Bring your instrument and give us a try! Rehearsals are Monday evenings at 7:30 PM in the Band Room at Glenbrook South High School. Student musicians are welcome to join for the summers.
The annual membership fee is $50 to help defray operating costs.
Book the Band!
The band is available to play concerts around the Chicago area throughout the year. Typically we perform as a 50~60 piece concert band, but we also feature a component Dixieland Band, as well as several smaller specialty ensembles, upon request. If you are interested in booking the band, please email email@example.com for more information.
