About the Linfield Concert Band (MUSC 110)

By audition. One credit. 

Tuesday, 6:30-9 p.m.; Thursday, 5-6:30 p.m.

The Linfield Concert Band is a compact ensemble where all members are of equal importance. The band stimulates musical challenge and growth through a variety of concert band and wind ensemble literature, utilizing flexible and full concert band instrumentation. Concerts are often thematic, and literature is selected from established and new composers including composers from under-represented populations.

The Linfield Concert Band shares an important role in training future conductors and composers. The performance experience during the year usually features a concert with student conductors who, as part of their conducting class select, prepare, and conduct ‘in concert’ a composition of their choosing. Student composers have the opportunity to hear their new compositions read by the Linfield Concert Band.

Instilling responsibility alongside accomplishment.

Participation encourages discipline and camaraderie in rehearsal and performance, and realizes a sense of pride in meaningful contribution to the Linfield community and the region.

In addition to performing at least one concert per semester, the Concert Band engages in outreach activities, community service, and fundraising activities for United Way by performing holiday music in smaller chamber ensembles to benefit diverse groups away from campus, including local schools, retirement communities, and the McMinnville Downtown Association.

This is your experience.

Concert Band is open to all students on campus regardless of major or minor. Membership auditions serve as an opportunity to assess readiness for participation. A year-long commitment is expected.
