Update on Municipal Band Concerts

Click on the following link to read the latest on the funding for the summer Long Beach Municipal Band Concerts.

Please note that as we begin deliberating for next year's budget that funding for the Municipal Band may not be available.

FYI -- a little historical note. The first city band was formed by Dr. W.L. Cuthbert, a former assistant surgeon in the Civil War. He was also the city's first public health officer. He and his family played for local residents. Cuthbert played the horn and the drum. He is on the far left of the photograph dated 1901.
