Pomona Concert Band Founded in 1947 by G. Stanton Selby, the Pomona Concert Band has become an integral part of Pomona's musical scene.  Performing at civic events and seasonal concerts, the high point of the band's year is the series of Summer concerts in the G.Stanton Selby Band Shell in Ganesha Park.  All performances are free to the public.  The band has performed at Disneyland and regional band festivals as well as on tours of Europe and Japan.

Although comprised primarily of experienced adult musicians, outstanding players from the local high school bands are invited to join.  Members travel from over twenty nearby communities to participate in one of the outstanding community bands in Southern California.
