Pomona Concert Band
Regretfully we have had to cancel our summer concert series due to health concerns from Covid-19. This has
been a hard, but necessary, decision for us to make. The band still has not been cleared to rehearse by
the city. We are hoping to meet conditions for resuming rehearsals in the next few weeks. Please see
our Newsletter for details and check our calendar for any future scheduled events.
The Pomona Concert Band was organized in November of 1947 by G. Stanton Selby. Since that time, the Band has become an important part of all music activities in Pomona. The Band performs at major civic events, gives concerts for neighboring cities, and presents a summer series of nine weekly concerts in Ganesha Park at the G. Stanton Selby Bandshell. All performances are free to the public.
The Band rehearses and performs throughout the year, and is built basically on adult membership. However, outstanding high school and college-age musicians are invited to audition for membership. The Band is under the direction of Linda W. Taylor, Conductor and Musical Director, along with Assistant Directors Dr. Jorge Garcia and Kerry Kline. Band members come from Pomona and more than twenty nearby communities to make music together. You are welcome to visit our rehearsals on Tuesday evenings from 7:30 to 9:30 PM at the Community Center in Ganesha Park, 1575 N. White Avenue in Pomona California. Come join us!
