Civic Band

If you want to be serenaded by talented musicians, then look no further than the Lakeland Civic Band at Lakeland Community College. Composed of Lakeland students, high school players, school music teachers, directors, and community musicians, the Civic Band is one of the few community college groups that received the Sudler Silver Scroll Award for musical excellence and service to the community.

The Lakeland Civic Band has been honored by invitations to perform for national, state and regional conferences including the Ohio Music Education Association Conference, the North Central regional Conference of the College Band Directors National Association at Ohio State University, the National Convention of the American School Band Directors Association in Columbus, and the National Convention of the Association of Concert Bands in Lisle, Illinois, and at the Chautauqua Institution.

Founded in 1977 the Lakeland Civic Band has commissioned two original compositions including POEM FOR BAND by Dr. Rex Mitchell and ODE TO A CLOCTOWER by Dan Rager. During its history, the Civic Band featured world renowned Dr. Frederick Fennell and Col. John Bourgeois as a guest conductor and Charles M. Frank as the conductor of today.
