"...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 100-member (give or take) UCity Summer Band is... Light Classics, Marches, Patriotic Music, Show Tunes, Transcriptions, Popular Music, Jazz, and Original Music for Band.
Concerts will be held at our new venue in Heman Park, 1028 Midland Blvd, University City, MO 63130 (park entrance is off Midland, opposite Shaftesbury).
All concerts start at 7PM, last about 80 minutes, and include a short intermission. Seating is on the lawn. Bring a lawn chair or blanket as available seating is limited. Bring your children! Bring a picnic!
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!
