The American Band is a symphonic concert band comprised of over 50 adult musicians from Rhode Island and nearby Connecticut and Massachusetts. Our repertoire is both versatile and traditional with works ranging from classical to popular, marches and operatic overtures to modern works for band. A number of smaller ensembles are also formed within the band. The band has a long and colorful history extending back to 1837, making the American Band one of the oldest continuously active bands in the United States. The American Band performance season extends from September through July with both public and private performances, indoors and out. We invite you to explore the world of the American Band.
