The Oxford Community Band, composed of members ranging from teachers to accountants to students who share a passion for music, prides itself on not holding auditions and producing great music with few rehearsals. Concerts average 25-30 performers with instrumentals including the flute, oboe, bassoon, clarinet, trumpet, alto saxophone, trombone, euphonium, tuba, and percussion.
Director Bob Eckhardt is also a member of the Ohio Military Band as well as the Southwest Ohio Symphonic Band.A graduate of the Music Education program at Morehead State University in Kentucky. Eckhardt leads the group through roughly seven performances each year.
This programming is made possible by the thousands of people, like you, who give generously to the ArtsWave Community Campaign. The Oxford Community Arts Center is also supported by the Ohio Arts Council. By strengthening investment and engagement in the arts, the Ohio Arts Council supports creative expression for artists, for organizations, for students and educators, and for the public.
