About the Clay County Community Band
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 celebrate Clay County's 150th birthday.
NOTE: The band is currently "in active" due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We continue to monitor the situation and are checking in regularly with the Clay County School Board to see when we can start practice up again. Currently, we are restricted from parcticing, and for holding concerts in most venues due to our size.
We hope to resume practice in August 2021, and will continue to update the website so that our members and followers know when rehearsals will begin and future concerts are scheduled.
