Founded in 1976, the Ithaca Concert Band in Ithaca, New York was formed to provide live, quality musical performances at places accessible to all people of Tompkins County and to offer local musicians a challenging and rewarding musical experience in an encouraging environment. To this day, the band carries on its original mission by playing free indoor & outdoor concerts in and around Ithaca, as well as at fundraisers for charitable organizations and local events such as picnics and carnivals. The band has also done outreach to area schools through its Adopt-A-Band program that promotes lifelong music by having young musicians perform a concert next to seasoned players who have chosen to make music part of their adult life. In many cases this experience allows those students the opportunity to perform pieces and have a band experience that may not have been possible in their own public school music program. The Ithaca Concert Band is made up from musicians from all walks of life who share the love of playing their instrument and making music. There have been hundreds of players over the years, with many who have been in the band for decades. More information about the band can be found at: http://ithacaconcertband.org/
