What We Do
The St. Louis Park Community Band is dedicated to making beautiful concert band music accessible to all. We provide a perfect mix of challenging music and social atmosphere. We are a friendly group of band members who take our music seriously. We are recognized as one of top adult concert bands in the state.
We have been bringing music to communities since 1972. Based in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, we are a group of about 65 dedicated musicians from all areas of the Twin Cities Metro Area. Under the direction of Steven G. Lyons, we perform a wide variety of music during our concerts throughout the year. Please see our concert schedule at right for our next appearance.
It is also important to us to share our life-long love of music with young people through joint concerts and instrument donations to underprivileged youths.
