From our founding in 1989 to being declared the official band of Clay County in 2007 and beyond, the Clay County Community Band has continued to develop and expand upon its two fold mission:
In the early years, the Band performed two or three concerts a year. Now we average eight concerts a year, encompassing 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, with words by Kathy Marsh, to celebrate Clay County's 150th birthday.
We continue to build our repertoire of music, serve the community through many different performance avenues, and build collegial relationships with musicians of all ages and from all walks of life. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you would like to join the band or if you would like the band to play at your event!
Join the Band
The Clay County Community Band is open to all adults that own a traditional band instrument and have a desire to participate in a group. Clay County residency is not a requirement to join the band. While no audition is required, except for students in 8-12 grade, we are not a beginning band. We have two bands: Jazz Band and Concert Band.
Both bands meet on Tuesday nights during the school year at the Lakeside Junior High School Band Room. The address is 2750 Moody Ave, Orange Park, FL, 32073. We would love to have you join us!
Jazz Band rehearses from 6:15-7:15pm
Concert Band rehearses from 7:30-9:00pm
