Saint Augustine Concert Band

The Saint Augustine Concert Band is a 65 member professional performing ensemble consisting of members of the woodwind, brass, and percussion families of instruments. Band members range in age from 18 to 70 years of age. The Band typically performs five concerts per year in October, December, March and May.

The type of music that they play is what distinguishes them from other musical groups…Typically, a concert band’s program will include original compositions, transcriptions and arrangements of orchestral compositions, light music, and popular tunes.

Some of the most important concert band composers of the 20th and 21st centuries include
Samuel Barber,Hector Berlioz,Aaron Copeland and Antonin Dvorak.

But it’s the work of the new generation of composers that are getting the attention of music lovers around the world. Concert band composers such as Frank Ticheli, Rossano Galante, John Mackey and Jess Langston Turner have audiences requesting their moving pieces; their music is proof that beautiful “classical music” is still being created today.

The Band’s Musical Director is Geoff Magnani, President is Steve Zukowsky and Vice President is Michael Mann.
