Danville Town Band began it's current iteration in 1991.  Our primary objectives are

  • to support the Danville School instrumental music program, 
  • to provide a supportive, yet challenging, outlet for area musicians,
  • to encourage families to make music together, and
  • to provide music for Danville Town events whenever possible

Our season runs from April through October with rehearsals most Sunday evenings from 7:00 - 8:30 pm in the Danville Community Building (beside the Pope Library).  New members are welcome at any time during the season.  We have a particular need to trombones and low saxes, but all instruments are welcome.

One of the earliest pictures of the Danville Town Band circa 1992.  When this picture was taken, 10 of the 19 members came from three families and included parents and children making music together.  Intergenerational music making is still a priority for the Danville Town Band and we invite parents & children and teachers & students to come and make music together.

Our 2018 Season will begin on Sunday, April 8 with Inaugural Rehearsal at the Danville Community Room.  Rehearsal are generally held most Sundays from 7:00 to 8:30 pm from April through October.  New musicians are always welcome.
