About Palatine Concert Band...

The Palatine Concert Band's history can be traced back to the 1870s. After being inactive during the depression years and WWII, the band was reorganized in 1955 with 18 members. With the purpose of improving the musical abilities of its members and the musical appreciation of its audience, the band incorporated as a Not for Profit Corporation in 1964. Today, the Palatine Concert Band is a vibrant ensemble of approximately 80 musicians.

Membership is open to qualified adult musicians by audition, and subject to openings in the particular section. The band rehearses every Tuesday from 8 PM to 10 PM at the Palatine Community Center, 250 East Wood Street, Palatine, Illinois.

The band is incorporated in the state of Illinois as a Not For Profit Corporation. Financial support for the band comes from the Palatine Park District, concert ticket sales, program advertising and summer concerts booked by the band. In return the Palatine Concert Band performs four formal concerts from fall to spring, and several summer concerts at the Fred P. Hall Amphitheater.

Year to year additional concerts are performed as contracted by the band. In recent years, these performances have included Fourth of July Fireworks Celebrations in Evanston and Wilmette, and the Ceremony of Flags in Northbrook, IL.

The bands expenses include music library purchases, guest soloists and administrative costs for insurance, programs, tickets and director. The ongoing success of this band is due to the involvement of so many members not only by their individual efforts in rehearsals and performances, but in the organization's administration. This vital and energetic group enjoys working together to produce quality concert band music.
