The American Legion Community Band, located in Front
Royal, Va, is in its 27th season.
With approximately 40 members, the band represents nearly
all sections of a concert band. The conductors and band
members are all volunteer musicians from the local area.
Located in the northwestern corner of Virginia, 70 miles west of Washington, D.C.,
Front Royal is one of many towns in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley.
Front Royal has long attracted tourists and seasonal residents, who have come to the area because of the climate,
accessibility to major cities, and scenic beauty. Major tourist attractions include Shenandoah National Park, Skyline Drive, Shenandoah River
and Skyline Caverns.
The band performs at a variety of
concerts and community festivals throughout the year.
All performances are free and open to the public. Our
repertoire is both versatile and traditional with works
ranging from classical to popular, marches and operatic
overtures to modern works for band. Thanks to the generous
support of the Giles B. Cook Post #53 of the
American Legion, the band purchases new
music arrangements each year.
The conductors are Ed
Richards, Ronald Dye and Mark Malechek. All rehearsals are held on Tuesdays from 7:30 - 9:00 pm in the Fulton Fine
Arts Complex bandroom at Randolph-Macon Academy in Front Royal, Va. Anyone who plays
an instrument and would like to join is welcome to attend.
The American Legion Community Band's performance season
extends from September through July each year with public
performances both indoors and out.
