There is no concert on August 18th, due to set up for Festival of the Little Hills, but we WILL be playing for the Festival on Saturday, from 10:-11:30, so stop by and see us between your purchases.
Please see the following message from Band President, Sister Gail Buckman, and the Board of Directors;
“A Band concert will be cancelled if a forecasted heat index is 100 degrees or above at 6:00 pm. If this criterion is met, the concert will be cancelled by 2:00 pm that afternoon. Please check the website if you have any doubt about the concert being held.
Due to the excessive heat warning, the Big (Jazz) Band concert for tonight, June 12th, has been cancelled. We look forward to seeing you in July!

Thank You MTC! You are the driving force behind each of our parades!
The St Charles Municipal Band was awarded the 2014 Americanism Award by the Kohl – Jeck Post 2866 Veterans of Foreign Wars and Ladies Auxiliary last evening. Members of the Band’s board of directors were on hand to accept the award. The award recognizes the Band’s commitment and support of our veterans and our community.
The Award Plaque reads as follows:
St. Charles City Municipal Band
A local treasure since it first marched down Main Street, July 4, 1870
A not-for-profit organization supported by the City of St Charles,
over 100 businesses, civic organizations and individuals.
The band has never turned down a request for supporting our patriotic
programs and has performed throught rain, snow, sleet and heavy winds to
bring musical energies to our city. Its inspiring marches and medleys at
annual and special commemorations is most note worthy. The band’s unselfish
devotion to not only the Veterans but to all citizens of St Charles
has made it the patriotic musical heart of this community.
