About US

The Alexandria Citizens Band is a community organization comprising volunteer members who bring musical entertainment to Northern Virginia, Alexandria, and the DC Metro area. The band was organized in 1912 and is one of the oldest community bands in the country. During the summer, the band is featured at the Friday evening concert series at Market Square in Old Town Alexandria. Year round we perform at patriotic ceremonies, congregational praise and worship services, arts festivals, retirement communities, neighborhood festivals, and regional band festivals. Please check our calendar for current events.

The band has smaller ensembles such as the swing band and the clarinet choir. The swing band performs at dances, church fellowships, and school board-sponsored concerts.
