Member of Assoc of Concert Bands

The Middlesex Concert Band, with over 50 volunteer performers, 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.

The band is directed by Mr. Mark E. Olson.

MCB Question of the Month

What instrument was once known as a SACKBUT?

Baritone Saxophone
Bass Drum
Last month's question:
In 1956 William Schumann (1910-1992) wrote a 3 movement piece for orchestra called "A New England Triptych" based hymns of William Billings. In 1957, Schumann took the third movement, expanded it, and scored it for band. What title was this piece published under?


Chester Overture for Band
"On A Hymn...." was made up. The other two choices were the other movements of "New England Triptych". Those he eventually scored for band as well, but it was "Chester" that he expanded (by adding a lot more fast notes) Schuman's other concert band works include "George Washington Bridge" and "Newsreel in 5 Shots".
