Charles Houston Recreation Center

This is about five blocks east of the Braddock Road Metro.

This is the city block east of Patrick St (aka US Rt 1 Northbound), and is between Madison St on the north and Wythe St on the south.

Day of Giving!

April 17th is Alexandria’s Day of Giving. Please considering supporting the band!! Just click on the link below and enter your pledge. Think you’ll forget? You can donate now and select “on a giving day” to have your pledge count on April 17th.


The ACB is an all volunteer organization and received NO funding or rehearsal space from the City of Alexandria. We perform mainly free concerts for the City but still have overhead expenses like office supplies, purchasing new music, insurance, web hosting, and a stipend for our professional conductor. Thank you for your support!

NO Rehearsals-Friday, March 29, 2013

Greetings everyone: there will be no ACB practice next Friday, March 29, 2013, in order to not conflict with possible church Good Friday activities and also because several members of the ACB will also be busy/absent that day. We will reconvene the following Friday, April 5, 2013, for practices, swing and concert band. Gracias!
