It's All About the Music!

Music Director Steven Wampler

Our concert band is sponsored by the Montgomery Village Foundation, Montgomery Village, Maryland, and directed by Steven Wampler. We are an all-volunteer organization that performs for local communities between Labor Day and July 4.

Our concert band rehearses on Wednesday evenings. We need double reeds, clarinets, horns, low brass players, and percussionists.

Our jazz band, the Montgomery Blue Notes, rehearses twice monthly on Monday evenings. and needs trombone and saxophone players.

But all are welcome - come on out and play with us!
