Pomona Concert Band Among the many budget items the City of Pomona has been forced to eliminate is the direct financial support for the Pomona Concert Band.  The City still provides logistical support such as rehearsal, concert, and office facilities, as well as personnel to assist with our concerts, for which we are most grateful.

As a result, we turn to our patrons and friends for donations to meet our expenses, such as music purchases, instrument maintenance and repair, and administrative expenses.  You may support the band by patronizing our snack bar, participating in the 50/50 raffles, advertising in our summer programs, or by direct donation.  Any band member can give you the necessary information for such support, and, WE THANK YOU!
