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.
