Greater Miami Symphonic Band


Description

The Community Band movement began in the early 1800’s.  Through the years, community bands have been a principal exponent of American musical culture at the grass roots level—playing for social and ceremonial occasions in bandstands, town halls, and auditoriums.  Community bands provide a means for continued musical expression by thousands of talented performers and an important cultural source for audience members.

 The Greater Miami Symphonic Band began in 1979.  Since the first rehearsal with forty-five musicians of diverse backgrounds and musical abilities, the Band has grown to a present membership of approximately eighty-five.

 GMSB members are adults who volunteer their time and talents to the Band.  The purpose is to provide the Miami area with a first-class musical aggregation and to provide opportunity for musical expression in an organized concert band.  The Band performs publicly on a regular basis at various indoor and outdoor locations, giving the residents of the area an opportunity to hear the beauty and diversity of the symphonic band repertoire.

 Did you play an instrument in high school or college but gave it up after graduation?  Well, polish up that old trombone or grease those bassoon joints because there is still room for you.  Bring back the excitement and fun of your band participation.  Join the Greater Miami Symphonic Band.
