Southwest Community Concert Band - 2015

The Southwest Community Concert Band performs five seasonal concerts, Summer Park Concerts and hosts Winter Band Day and Summer Band Camp for student musicians throughout the season.
See our Events Calendar Page for our current calendar of events.


Apologies to our concert patrons and the kids looking forward to our 2016 Winter Band Day.  The band lost the use of the Eagle Rock Church facility and needed to cancel both our December 20th Christmas Concert and our 2016 Winter Band Day.

The band is performing a Christmas Concert at Saint Terrence Church in Alsip.  Saint Terrence welcomes all of our concert goers to the December 12th concert.  It''s sure to put you in the Christmas Spirit!
