Fairbanks Community Band, Inc. sponsors wind and percussion ensembles for adult musicians, including a traditional concert band and a jazz band. The Band's ensembles perform free public concerts, participate in community events such as the 4th of July gala, Golden Days parade, the Tanana Valley Fair, and Honor Flight receptions, as well as provide music for high school graduations, and are available for private functions.
The band's members come from all walks of life! Many are teachers, as well as lawyers, physical therapists, writers, handymen, and seismologists! Afterall, it is a community! If you played an instrument in school but life got in the way after graduation, and are interested in getting back into it? we're the place for you! Most of our members aren't professional musicians but simply dedicated community members who love making music together. Many of our members have come back to playing after 10, 20, or even 30 years, it's not too late!
