Welcome to the Bangor Band

Welcome to the online home of the Bangor Band. 2021 marks our 162nd Birthday, 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 162 years!

As Maine begins its  Safe Re-opening, your Band has likewise returned for rehearsals and concerts! We now have a Summer Concert Series lined up which you can view here:

Bangor Band Summer Concerts

We have made one change to the calendar. There will be no concert on August 3rd. Instead, please join us on Tuesday, August 10th for the annual Chapin Park Block Party! Activities begin at 6:00 and the Band will play at 6:30. Grab the kiddies and plan on having a good time together at this family-style yearly event. See you there!

The conductors, Curvin “Chip” Farnham , Philip Edelman , Scott Burditt and members of the Band are thrilled to be able to once again share music with our wonderful friends and family in the Bangor community. We’ve missed you!
