Welcome to the website for the Florence Community Band. The band is based in Florence, a village of Northampton, Massachusetts.
The Florence Community Band was founded on April 18, 2001. Our first rehearsal took place at the Florence Congregational Church, with 10 members in attendance.
Today, our membership roster totals over 75!
We are funded solely through donations. There are no dues, and concerts are free, but we do request a donation of a non-perishable food item for the Northampton Survival Center.
- From September-June, rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings at the Northampton High School Band Room, 7-9 p.m.
- From June-August, rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings at John F. Kennedy Middle School, 7-8:30 p.m.
Everyone is welcome. There are no auditions required.
