Watauga Community Band

We are excited that our current band includes a large contingent of high school and university students swelling our ranks to about 50 members and enriching our sound.

Announcing Our 2024 Spring Concert

The Watauga Community Band is thrilled to invite you to our spring concert at Rosen Concert Hall in the Hayes School of Music on the Appalachian State Campus at 6:30 pm on Sunday, May 5, 2024.

Our spring program is wide-ranging – from the West Side Story favorite, “America,” by Leonard Bernstein to Aaron Copeland’s gentle “Down a Country Lane” to the swinging “Harlem Nocturne” by Earle Hagan to “When the Morning Stars Sang” by James Curnow based on the American spiritual “There is a Balm in Gilead.”

We are pleased that our Spring band has grown substantially.  We have many younger members, which is exciting for the future.   Our practice space at Boone’s First Baptist Church really fills up for rehearsals.  Many many thanks to the church for letting us use this space and helping in innumerable other ways.
