The Ithaca Concert Band is managed by its members on a volunteer basis. There are many opportunities for band members to get involved. We encourage everyone to share their enthusiasm, expertise, and skills. Those interested in volunteering should talk to the band president.
The band has an all-volunteer Board of Directors and several volunteers. Responsibilities of the Board of Directors are listed in the band’s by-laws. Briefly, the board comprises four Officers, four Directors, and between one and four Members at Large. Elections are held annually in February.
