Dear friends and members of Nevada
County Concert Band,
Now that shuttered places and activities are beginning to reopen, we're all
wondering how soon we'll be able to "strike up the band." The
answer is.... we don't know. Like other local performing arts groups,
our season is currently on hold, and we have no plans to hold rehearsals or
concerts before August 1 at the earliest.
As much as we want to make music again, NCCBand's
highest priority is to protect the health and well-being
of our members, our audience, and this wonderful community to whom we
belong. We don't know when the band will be able to get back
together. We don't know what our rehearsals and concerts will look
like. But in these uncertain times, there's one thing we know for sure:
we'll be back.
NCCBand carries on a proud Nevada County tradition of community concert bands
dating back to the Gold Rush era. That long history includes wars,
pandemics, natural disasters, and tough economic times. Music has
always survived. So will NCCBand.
In the meantime, we miss you! And we eagerly await the day when once
again we can share and enjoy the gift of music with those who mean so much to
Every year, the Nevada
County Concert Band (NCCBand) brings back to life an era in American history
when the local Sunday Band Concert was a grand social occasion. Located in the Sierra Nevada
foothills' gold country of Grass Valley and Nevada City, the NCCBand performs
at public parks and local events.
In the summer, enjoy the 4-part Picnic Pops Concert
Series, wave a flag at the curbside with the band at the Independence Day
Parade, catch our performance at the Nevada County Fair, or join us at
Constitution Day's street concert. Our local volunteer musicians will
entertain you with a fine selection of family-friendly music. If you are seeking a
true small-town experience, join the hundreds of loyal NCCBand fans at any of
the variety of concerts listed at this website. Once you experience the music
and fun with the Nevada County Concert Band, you’ll understand another reason
why we believe that the Gold Country is so special.
