About

Established in February 2009, the Main Street Community Band (MSCB) is an open-membership, volunteer ensemble open to all wind, brass, and percussion players 18 and older with varying levels of training. No audition is necessary; just come and play. The group’s intent is to create a warm and welcoming spirit that provides rewarding music making with friends along with musical growth. Members reflect a wide range of musical backgrounds, from those who are reviving their musical skills to more advanced players. Throughout a season the band performs a broad range of music, including marches, classical orchestral works transcribed for band, and holiday pieces. MSCB performs four free concerts each season, including a featured performance during the City of Fairfax Spotlight on the Arts festival.
