Celebrating 40 Years of Music!

ICB's mission from the start has been twofold: to foster enjoyment for member-performers and their audience. Forty years ago, in the summer of 1976, our country was celebrating its bicentennial, Jimmy Carter was president, and the Ithaca Concert Band began its first concert series. ICB has been invited to perform at several prestigious gatherings of musicians including the New York State School Band Directors Association in Syracuse, the Association of Concert Bands in Rochester and the New Your State School Music Association Summer Conference in Rochester.
