We are your Community Backup Band.

Celebrating 35 years of service to The Albert Lea Area.

The Albert Lea Community Band was formed in January, 1982. 

Our volunteers support community and charitable events throughout the year.

Hosted by Albert Lea Community Education, we rely on donations from individuals and local businesses to support our ongoing efforts.

Join us for fun and serve your community!

You may have seen us play at huge July 4th fireworks displays on Fountain Lake.

But in addition to this well known community celebration,  we also have performed at locations outside of Albert Lea like the Historic Brick House near Hayward.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We support charitable events like Relay For Life held at the Freeborn County Fairgrounds. 

During the past few years, we have been privileged to perform with the Harmony Junction Chorus and Faith Tones during the Christmas season.

 Harmony Junction's efforts  have provided funding for area organizations, including area youth programs, The Salvation Army, Ecumenical Food Shelf and the Freeborn County Historical Society.

Want to join us? 

Albert Lea Community Band members come from all walks of life.  Our ages range from teens to over 85.  Teachers, students, farmers and business people all have one thing in common, they like to play music. Even more interesting is that they come from miles away just to play in the band.

Dust off that old instrument in the closet, if you have not played in awhile.  If you are a student that would like to sharpen your skills, please join us.

There are no auditions.

Just bring your instrument and a good sense of humor.

We're not necessarily the stars of the show. We serve as a musical  backup to numerous volunteer efforts throughout the year.

 

Our Tuesday night practices start on April 16th

We usually have a practice several Tuesday evenings at 7:00 PM  prior to a public event.
It's a relaxed atmosphere in which you learn a lot and share a good laugh.  

Tuesday evenings 7:00 PM to 8:30PM May through December.
See 2017 Performance schedule above.
