The Kishwaukee Concert Band (KCB) is an all-volunteer adult community band composed of amateur and professional musicians from DeKalb, Illinois and surrounding communities. Our goal is to bring together musicians, age 18 years and older, who have played in a traditional concert band (woodwinds, brass, percussion) in high school and/or college, to rehearse and perform concert band repertoire for ourselves and the audiences who attend our concerts. No auditions are necessary. Our varied repertoire ranges from marches, operatic overtures, musicals, and light classics to contemporary works for band.


There’s nothing like the thrilling sound of a concert band! New members are always welcome and no auditions are necessary. Even if you haven’t played in a few years (or more!), get your instrument out and give it a try! Please see our contact us page.
