The Lansing Concert Band is a community band with a rich history, now celebrating more than 75 years in the mid-Michigan area. Today, the all-volunteer, adult concert band is a first-class performing ensemble, appearing in many concerts, festivals and civic functions throughout the year.
Year-round activities include: traditional, pops, and holiday concerts; children's concerts at MSU's Wharton Center and Charlotte Performing Arts Center, attended by over 2,500 elementary students from Lansing and surrounding communities; performances for college graduations; outdoor park concerts; and other community events. For more than 20 years, the band has been featured in concert at the City of Lansing's Independence Day celebration at Riverfront Park.
The LCB is a member of the Michigan School Band and Orchestra Association, the Association of Concert Bands, and the Arts Council of Greater Lansing. The band receives funding through grants from the Michigan Arts and Culture Council and the Arts Council of Greater Lansing, and well as donations from members and the public. The band receives transportation assistance from the Marshall Music Company.
We are the official band of the City of Lansing.
The band averages 80 members.
We range in age from teens to 90+!
Our concerts are presented free or with discounted admission for students.
We reach hundreds of elementary students each year through our annual “Introduction to the Band” educational concerts.
Since 2010, we have awarded scholarships to talented high school soloists through our annual Young Artist Competition.
The LCB is a 501c3 organization, and is also a member of the Capital Region Community Foundation. We rely on a combination of individual donations, support from businesses and foundations, grants, concert sponsorships, and other earned revenue to cover the balance of our budget.
