Welcome to the Bangor Band

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!

July 16Your Bangor Band will have a change of venue as we travel to the University of Maine on July 16th! We will be welcoming two guest conductors this week:  Mrs. Tiffany Hitz joins us from Fairfax County, Virginia where she is Director of Bands and Music Department Chair at Rachel Carson Middle School. Returning as guest conductor will be Mr. Christopher White of the University of Maine where he is Director of the UMaine Symphonic Band and Athletic Bands. He is also the Director of the Maine Summer Youth Music Camp.

Come and be a part of the action at 7:00 in the Collins Art Center as Conductor, Dr. Philip Edelman and Assistant Conductor Mr. Scott Burditt lead the Band in some foot-tapping music at the home of the University’s Maine Summer Youth Music Camp!
