Making musical history for 100 years.
The Charlottesville Band has grown from an enthusiastic, but inexperienced, group of citizen musicians in 1922 to an accomplished and dedicated team of women and men today. Seven music directors have guided hundreds of Band members through the years, expanding the musical repertoire and diversifying the membership along the way. The Band persisted through the highs and lows of the 20th century and continues to serve our community in the 21st. Leading up to our Centennial celebration in 2022, we invite you to check out some highlights from the Band’s past 100 years.
