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.

Haven't played your instrument for years?  It doesn't matter!  Here's your chance to become reaquainted with an art and activity that you once enjoyed.  Repertoire  includes music of many different styles and time periods.  Music majors are encouraged to participate on secondary instruments in order to expand their knowledge and skills in music performance and education.

  • Dust off that case!
  • Dig out those fingering charts.
  • Re-convert that lamp into the trumpet it used to be!
  • But most importantly, don't miss this opportunity to continue or renew your love of performance.
