Nevada is fortunate to have its very own Nevada Community Band. Formed in 1999 as a Leadership Nevada initiative, the Nevada Community Band performs several concerts each summer. This summer concerts will take place on Tuesday evenings, 7 p.m., on the City Hall Campus.


The concert season starts Tuesday, June 13. Remaining concert dates are June 20, June 27 and July 4. On July 4, the band is giving their patriotic concert after the July 4 parade on the City Hall Campus. The Nevada Community Band is inviting everyone to stay downtown after the parade and celebrate Independence Day with the band!


The Nevada Community Band is always looking to invite new band members to join. The emphasis is on the community aspect in the band. The band is in particular need of a few brass and clarinet players. Rehearsals are Monday evenings in the Nevada High School Band room, from 7-8 p.m. Music is chosen that will entertain the audience and be true to the rich tradition of community bands in Iowa. If you want to join the Nevada Community Band, please contact Wade Presley at wpresley@nevada.k12.ia.us.
