The Middlesex Concert Band
(MCB) is a nonprofit community band based in Wakefield, Massachusetts
that strives to bring affordable entertainment to Wakefield
and surrounding communities. Originally founded in the 1950s
as a marching band, we later evolved into a concert band and
gave our first performance in the spring of 1975 at Memorial
Hall in Melrose.
over 50 volunteer performers, the band plays traditional and
contemporary wind ensemble music, marches, big band sounds,
folk tunes and music from Broadway and Hollywood. From September
to May, the Middlesex Concert Band presents a series
of pops and holiday concerts. During the summer months, the
band can be heard playing traditional outdoor concerts in
town parks and commons throughout the region. The band's mission
is to promote greater knowledge and appreciation for wind
music while bringing enjoyment to its listening audience.
For the past six years, MCB has been
led by Music Director Mark
E. Olson, the Director of Bands for Harvard University
and an accomplished trumpet player.
