Nothing beats the experience of live music, in great settings where audiences and band members alike create a unique atmosphere while enjoying music that has served as the backdrop for our history and pop culture. That’s exactly what the St. Charles Concert Band has been doing since 1870 – serving as a cultural anchor for the community and bringing audiences together through music. All of our performances are celebrations, offering audiences a fun and free opportunity to experience the big songs that represent music’s past and future.
So grab a chair, your friends, your dancing shoes, a picnic, – whatever will make it a great time for you – and join us for one of our shows! It’s your evening and your experience! Our assortment of tunes is vast, spanning over 100 years of history and modern popular music. Recent concert performances include music such as:
- Jersey Boys
- Stars & Stripes Forever
