"...exactly what a community band ought to be..."
audience comment during the 2004 season
"It was terrific to get to hear such a fine band, and so close to our house. I loved how the balance was great, the blend was lovely, and you got them to play dynamics(!)."
comment during the 2011 season, by Thomas Jostlein, Associate Principal French Horn, St. Louis Symphony, from the 2011 season
The 90-member (give or take) UCity Summer Band is... Light Classics, Marches, Patriotic Music, Show Tunes, Transcriptions, Popular Music, Jazz, and Original Music for Band.
PLEASE NOTE: the area is shaded by buildings to the west at 6:30pm. There is usually a breeze and never glaring sun!! :o)
All concerts start at 7pm and last about 60 minutes with a short intermission. You may come and go as you please.
Bring a lawn chair, available seating is limited. And bring your children!!!
For our last piece each concert, we play "On the Mall." Children are invited to come up to the front and conduct the band and receive their very own UCity Summer Band pencil!
