Who is in the Maynard Community Band?
The Maynard Community Band provides an outlet for musicians of various ages, abilities, and backgrounds to come together to play great music! Our band is two bands in one: the concert band and the dance band. Our band members come from the town of Maynard as well as other nearby communities such as Acton, Stow, and Marlboro, and from as far away as Billerica, Lexington, Waltham, and Wayland.

The Maynard Community Dance Band plays big band and dance favorites including "String of Pearls," "In the Mood," and "Stardust." Our concert band selections include classical songs ("William Tell Overture"; "1812 Overture"), marches ("National Emblem"; "Hall of Fame March"); show tunes ("Oliver!"; "Phantom of the Opera"; "Fiddler on the Roof"); latin songs ("Begin the Beguine"; "Beguine Festival"); and patriotic songs ("Stars and Stripes Forever"; "American Patrol"). We are always rehearsing new songs to expand our repertoire.
