Notes from the CCB

CCB patrons and band members.

As a result of the guidelines set forth in the State’s five phase plan for reopening, we do not know when we will be able to resume rehearsals or concerts. We continue to closely monitor the situation.  We will update you as soon as we are able to safely resume playing. 

Thank you!

Leslie Miller, Membership

Kristi Lewis, President

Mike Wallace, Director

Music to titillate tapping toes, young and old alike! The Bloomington-Normal Community Concert Band (CCB) performs a variety of concerts throughout the year around Central Illinois. From concerts Miller Park, Wesley Methodist Church, and Westminster Village, to the every-Thursday-night summer concerts in Franklin Park, to parade appearances for events in places around central Illinois.


Volunteer musicians providing free concerts to the local community.  The band has around 70 volunteer members from the Central Illinois area. The B-N Community Concert Band is sponsored by the Bloomington Parks and Recreation Department. We are always looking for new members. Just show up at a rehearsal and bring your horn or your sticks (we do have our own percussion gear).


Bloomington-Normal has had a community or municipal band for over a 100 years.
