Springfield Municipal Band


The Springfield Municipal Band was founded by referendum in 1936. The Band performs a number of free park concerts at Douglas Park each summer and also performs at many military and civic events during the year.

Of the fifty or more members, most are professional musicians, music teachers or college students majoring in music. Membership is by audition.

The Municipal Band's normal summer schedule includes weekly concerts on Tuesday evenings in the Douglas Park band shell. Other appearances are scheduled as requested, primarily around holidays such as the Fourth of July, Memorial Day and Veterans Day.

Tom Philbrick is the conductor of the Springfield Municipal Band.

Greg Cohill is the Manger of the Springfield Municipal Band. He can be reached at 217.414.4003
