Welcome To Our Website!

The Seneca Falls Community Band is a not-for-profit corporation that supports and leads a volunteer musical ensemble that plays an active role in promoting musical performance, educating the public by providing all kinds of community band music, and performing free summer concerts. We perform concerts on Friday nights, late June through mid August, in Peoples Park, Seneca Falls NY, just south of the Gould Hotel and the Women’s Rights National Historic Park.

Our History

Originating in 1985, the Seneca Falls Community Band was founded by the Kirk-Casey American Legion Post #366 of Seneca Falls to encourage community spirit through participation in a community concert band. The band would perform for civic festivities to increase community spirit and pride, visibility, increase membership participation, and audience satisfaction.

Seneca Falls Community Band is operated exclusively for educational and charitable purposes within the meaning of Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and is also registered with the NYS Office of Charitable Organizations.

Upcoming Events

Our concerts take place on Friday nights in Peoples’ Park at 7:00 pm.  In the years prior to 2020, concerts were held inside at the Seneca Falls Community Center gym if the weather was inclement; however, since the summer of 2020, safety guidelines due to COVID-19 have required us to hold rehearsals and concerts outdoors only.  Check here for an update as our 2022 season begins.  

                     The SFCB performs a wide variety of musical literature written for concert band, including marches, Broadway music, popular, jazz, patriotic standards, and commissioned pieces.
