The SMSU/Community Concert Band is open to all SMSU students as well as community members and high school students from Marshall and the surrounding communities.  The Concert Band rehearses from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Thursdays. 

Music is a social activity that can be enjoyed throughout one's life.  The SMSU/Community Concert Band is designed with this idea in mind.  Musicians young and old benefit from sharing their skills, experiences, and love of music with one another.
