About Willamette Valley Concert Band

The WVCB was formed in the spring of 1970 offering members opportunities for personal self-expression through the medium of good music. Original members were primarily from Albany and the group was called the Albany Civic Band. Fifty-two years later band membership has grown to over 50 musicians from Benton, Marion, Polk, and Linn Counties. We are an incorporated 501(c)3 non-profit organization governed by an administrative board of directors. The band entered a mentoring partnership with the Albany School District in 2006 to provide assistance to middle and high school band directors. Our musicians have served as mentors to hundreds of local music students over the past 16 years.
