The Upstate Senior Concert Band had it inaugural practice in May of 1999.  It was started as a result of an announcement in the monthly newsletter of Senior Action asking for any interested seniors to join in the creation of a band.  With a philosophy that encouraged pleasure and relaxed participation, the initial five members grew to fifteen by the fall of that year.  During the next ten years, the band grew to include thirty-three members who have enjoyed providing musical entertainment within various communities of the upstate.

Music selections include sounds of the big bands (40’s and 50”s), swing, patriotic, marches, pop tunes, and novelties.  Concerts are presented at no charge although donations are accepted to help cover costs of sheet music and equipment.  The band plays for churches, hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, parties, patriotic programs, and community events. 

The band is always looking for new members.  If you are at least 55 years of age (male or female) and have played a musical instrument, the band would welcome you.  Bring your instrument to the weekly Tuesday morning rehearsals, 9-11:00 AM, at Senior Action, 50 Directors Dr., Greenville, S.C. 29615.
