Repertoire

A variety of band literature, including marches, symphonic transcriptions, easy listening pops, swing, patriotic, and holiday tunes, is played at the weekly rehearsals and public performances. The group presents three seasonal public concerts, performs at retirement centers, and participates in the annual Oregon Adult Band Festival. During the summer, you’ll often find the band at community events such as the Beaverton Farmer’s Market, the City’s Picnics in the Park and at concerts on the lawn of the Beaverton City Library.
