Youngstown Area Community Concert Band

Interested in joining YACCB?


We have openings in all sections of our band.   While we do not require auditions, we do ask that you have an interest in music and  that you will continue to improve your playing skills.  We expect you to be in attendance at all rehearsals, performances, and engagements to the best of your ability.


We do not charge dues or annual membership fees.  We require that you purchase a band shirt to be worn at most performances.  Dress codes may change for formal concerts and will be announced.


Contact us to let us know of your interest, then show up at rehearsal any Thursday evening at 7:00 at Bliss Hall band room at YSU.  We will introduce you to our conductor and your section leader.  We ask that you attend at least 2 rehearsals before submitting a membership application.  In these couple rehearsals you will be able to determine if our band is a good fit for you.


We realize that community bands come in all different flavors, and we want you to enjoy being a part of YACCB.
