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 from high school students to mature adults. The band rehearses weekly and performs ten concerts a year.
Performances include an Annual Spring Concert, several holiday concerts in Wakefield, Pawtucket, and Newport and five summer concerts at Marina Park in South Kingstown. The Spring Concert helps raise money for South County Hospital in addition to providing music scholarships to deserving high school students. Since 2008 the band has raised over $130,000 for South County Hospital.
