Novi Concert Band
The Novi Concert Band is a symphonic wind ensemble comprised of an all volunteer group of instrumental musicians from Novi and the surrounding communities. The band was formed in 1982 to provide adults with a musical background an opportunity to participate in musical performances throughout the Greater SE Michigan area.
The Novi Concert Band performs music ranging from standard band literature (Sousa and Karl King marches), to movie music arrangements, big band jazz, and seasonal favorites.
The Novi Concert Band invites interested adult musicians to join the group. Become part of the band and meet other people who love to play music. Weekly rehearsals are held in the Novi High School band room on Tuesdays, 7:30pm to 9:30pm.
