Welcome to the online home of the Bangor Band. 2019 marks our 160th Anniversary, making us one of the oldest, continuous community bands in the United States. We have been performing concerts at various venues throughout the greater Bangor area since our inaugural season in 1859 and are proud of our musical tradition in serving countless generations of Bangorians for the past 160 years!
June 1: Maine is going to be how old in 2020? How time flies! Join us at the Wells Conference Center as your Bangor Band gets a head start on Maine’s Bicentennial with a concert at 4:00. Our concert is being cosponsored by UMaine’s School of Performing Arts and Bangor Parks & Recreation. And if you’re interested in the rich history of our Pine Tree State, plan to attend some of the events, panels and presentations happening at the Maine Statehood and Bicentennial Conference! All are being held at the beautiful University of Maine campus in Orono, ME, from May 30 to June 1, 2019.
June 11: Join us as we begin our 2019 Summer Concert Series on the lawn of the Bangor Public Library at 7:00. Chairs will be provided along with the foot-tapping music by YOUR Bangor Band!
As always, our concerts are free of charge but donations are welcome and appreciated!
You can always check here for where and when the Bangor Band will be performing throughout our 2019 season!
