If you’d like to become a member of our band, all it takes is a desire (and some ability) to play. The band rehearses at the Schauer Arts and Activities Center in Hartford every Monday evening at 8:00 pm throughout the year. We don’t require an audition or membership fee. Our Mission: To provide the Hartford area with a community band that affords musicians an opportunity to play and residents an opportunity to be entertained.
The band typically performs about eight concerts in the park during the summer as well as a fall and spring concert in the Schauer Center. We also participate in a few area parades — in chairs on a flatbed semitrailer. Like many other community bands, we perform a wide variety of music — from marches and musicals, to a classical overture or two. But we don’t stop there; our philosophy is that you can’t grow as a musician unless you are challenged once in a while.
If you feel that you are up to the challenge, please send an email to:
You can also call Eric Dietenberger at (262) 673-0142. Eric has been a member of the band since 1982 and is currently a member of the board as well as the band’s equipment manager.
