Greenbelt Concert Band


The Greenbelt Concert Band is a volunteer adult musical organization dedicated to providing quality musical performances for the citizens of the City of Greenbelt, Prince George’s County, and surrounding areas. The band performs for civic and charitable activities, including concerts for veteran’s groups, retirement communities, nursing homes, and hospitals. It is composed of musicians from local communities and is open to all those with appropriate playing experience. The Band rehearses each Monday evening.

Regularly scheduled concerts include the pre-fireworks performance each July 4th at Buddy Attick Park, the Holiday Lights Festival performances each December, and the Greenbelt Day performance within the City of Greenbelt. Most concerts are open to the general public and all are free of charge.

Within three years of its founding in 1937, the City of Greenbelt began sponsoring “a band”. It is with great pride that the Greenbelt Concert Band traces its roots back through over seventy years of continuous service to the City of Greenbelt. Please go to our History page for additional details.
