The City of Lakes Community Band is dedicated to encouraging adult amateur musicianship and providing continuing music education for its members; supporting music education in the Minneapolis Public Schools; and stimulating the appreciation of band music by providing free public band concerts. The City of Lakes Community Band (formerly the Calhoun-Isles Community Band) was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1983. Our repertoire includes classical, jazz and modern concert band compositions, as well as old favorites such as Broadway musical scores and John Philip Sousa marches.
On our YouTube channel, you will find one of our favorite suites in recent memory, the Divine Comedy. We shared this concert with our community in March of 2019 and we are so happy to be able to share it with you through the power of the internet! Movement 4, Paradiso, perfectly describes how your support makes us feel -- thank you!
