The Burlington Concert Band in 2016

The Burlington Concert Band is a non-profit organization associated with the Burlington City Arts and the Burlington Parks and Recreation Department. We give free concerts every Sunday night at 7:00 p.m. during the summer season which begins in May and continues until the end of August. During that time the band rehearses on Thursday nights at 7:00pm. BCB is currently coming into its 163th season.

The Burlington Concert Band is constantly looking for new members. If rehearsing and performing with the BCB is something that you might be interested in, you can find more information on our participation page. For a listing of the officers of our organization please click here.
