Welcome to the Band
The Wakefield Concert Band is a community band consisting of both amateurs and former professional musicians from South Kingstown as well as other parts of Rhode Island and nearby Connecticut. The membership of the band ranges in age from high school students to 99. The band rehearses weekly and performs a number of concerts throughout the year.
Performances include an annual Spring Concert, several Holiday Concerts in Wakefield, Pawtucket, and Newport, and five 'Summer Concerts By the Sea' at Marina Park in South Kingstown. The Spring Concert helps raise money for South County Hospital and South Kingstown Music Boosters. Since 2008 the band has raised over $140,000 for South County Hospital.
