Founded over 40 years ago by Dr. Larry Grandy, the Shasta College Symphonic Band has been dazzling audiences ever since.
The Shasta College Symphonic Band (90 plus member band!) is one of the largest college/community bands in the state of California and draws musicians from Shasta and the surrounding counties. The band serves the educational needs of music majors but also provides enriching musical opportunities to musicians of all ages. Over the years there have been multiple generations from families who have performed with the band!
The ensemble performs two concerts annually and regularly performs at the Freedom Festival at the Civic Auditorium on Independence Day. The band promotes the best of the traditional American concert band experience, playing everything from standard band literature and contemporary music, to marches, and fanfares, as well as show tunes, movie music, and pop medleys.
Rehearsals are Thursday evenings during the fall and spring semesters from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm. Membership is open to all standard band instruments and although an audition is not required for participation, all members are expected to have previous band experience.
