Concert Band

The Alabama Concert Band began in the spring of 2010 and is comprised of University students from various majors. The membership of the ensemble is selected by audition in the fall of each year. The band performs a varied repertoire of literature ranging from the most cutting edge new literature to the cornerstone classics of the wind band repertoire. The ensemble rehearses one night each week during the Fall semester and two days each week in the Spring semester with two performances per semester. All concerts are open to the public, free of charge and begin at 7:30 PM (unless otherwise announced).
