About the Band

The Richmond Concert Band, is a diverse but united adult community band whose mission is to perform free concerts for the citizens of the metropolitan Richmond area, and to provide a quality and challenging performing experience for local musicians of all ages.  Concerts are presented year-round with the summer/outdoor season opening at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens on the Saturday/day before Easter. The band also performs 4 or 5 indoor Christmas Concert in December in different parts of the metro area, someplace convenient for most everyone.   Other indoor concerts are also performed on occasion.

Recent Announcements

The band is thrilled to be back at Maymont for another concert.  Sunday, July 27th, at 6:00pm on the Carriage House lawn.  The concert theme is Wild Life… songs about various animals like Elephants, Frogs, Birds, Lions, Beatles, Kittens, Dragons, Flies, Kangaroos, Horses, and more.  Nothing too scary or dangerous (the Lion is asleep and the Dragon is flying and the Beetles just may have come from Liverpool, and both the cricket & the frog are just singing).  Can you imagine what each song might be?

Park your car and enter Maymont at the Hampton Street gate.  Remember to bring lawn chairs and/or a blanket, and of course, picnics are welcome.  Bring the family and also invite your friends and neighbors.  A great way to end the weekend before heading back to work on Monday!
