About Us

The Upper Chesapeake Community Band was founded in 1994. We are an all-age, all-volunteer organization whose purpose is to provide concert music for the surrounding community, and to give adult musicians a way to continue performing after leaving school. Our band plays year-round for local nursing homes, retirement centers, civic functions, parades, and patriotic celebrations and holiday concerts. We are a certified 501(c)(3) non-profit, supported in part by grants from the Cecil County Arts Council and the Maryland State Arts Council, and by the Rising Sun American Legion. Since most of our performances are unpaid, we rely on the generosity of our patrons and donations from concertgoers. All financial donations made to support UCCB are fully tax-deductible.

Our Mission Statement

The Upper Chesapeake Community Band provides a challenging performance
outlet for musicians of all ages to hone their craft by performing a
broad range of musical styles for the enjoyment of the community and
the enhancement of its members' artistic expression.
