Since its founding in 1989, to its being declared the official band of Clay County in 2007, the Clay County Community Band
has continued to develop and expand upon its two fold mission:
First, to provide an arena for local musicians to come together, to share in the joy of music making, and to develop their talents in both rehearsal and performance.
Second, to serve our community by performing concerts for pure entertainment, for commemorating holidays and for charitable fundraising.
In the early years the Band gave two or three concerts a year. Now it averages eight
concerts a year, including all of Clay County in our venues.
In the past, the Band has featured well known guest artists such as Roy McCance on clarinet and
UNF Professor Dr. Marc Dickman on euphonium.
In 2008 the Band premiered "Sesquicentennial March and Song" composed especially for our band by Roy McCance and words by Kathy Marsh, to celebebrate Clay County's 150th birthday.
