HIGHLANDS RANCH CONCERT BAND
We are a committed group of amateur and professional musicians dedicated to entertaining the Highlands Ranch Community. Our mission is to provide quality, educational concerts through a variety of musical literature and collaborative performances in order to promote musical arts and a spirit of community for both adults and children in the South Metro region.
What Makes Us Special
We provide two ensembles for community members to join, the original Concert Band and Swing Shift which is our jazz group. Both ensembles perform in Highlands Ranch at a variety of venues including celebrations, civic functions, and parades. The Concert Band performs an annual Veteran’s Day Concert where we collaborate with an elementary school choir and an adult choir. During the summer we play at outdoor venues, with regular summer dates that include a yearly Highlands Ranch Music Arts Festival and an annual Children’s Concert.
