About us . . .
The Delano Community band is an all-volunteer, inter-generational concert band based in Delano, Minnesota. Established in November 2017, band membership has comprised of musicians ranging from a (very) talented 9th grader to those who’ve been performing for over 50 years. This diversity of experience enables the band to offer growth as well as performance opportunities for area musicians.
Rehearsals are held Tuesday evenings from 7:00-8:40 p.m. in the Delano High School band room.
We cover virtually every major genre of western music. Our repertoire spans traditional concert band fare, renditions of early music, adaptations of classic orchestral pieces, and contemporary original works for concert band.
We don’t hold auditions, but you’re invited to sit in on a rehearsal with us. We do ask that you let us know when you wish to sit in. Simply complete the form on the “Get Involved” page (or click here). That lets us know when to expect you, what instrument you play, and allows us to answer any immediate questions you may have.
