A brief history of our band...
At the right, you can see a festive photo taken at the Blake Library before a Christmas concert. Our chief goal is to perform quality music for ourselves and the community.
The Stuart Community Band began in the early 1900’s as a collection of musicians with a common purpose: to get together, rehearse and perform for the community.
Today, we perform up to 10 concerts per year. Our rehearsals are open to anyone who wants to sit in and play or just come and listen. Our musical director is Mr. Jim LeBon, retired band director at Southport K-8 in Port St. Lucie. Mr. LeBon is not only been a fine musician, having played in many local groups, but is also an adjudicator in Florida band competitions. He also arranges music for young bands.
We strive for top-level musicality. We have a large number of professional musicians, but also many that just play for the fun, enjoyment, and camaraderie. Several in the group have been playing together for 20+ years, as we have several in the band that are over 80 years young. Please come and join us; we always have a place for newcomers.
Currently, we rehearse at the Elliott Museum on Hutchinson Island
on Monday evenings from 7 - 9 PM.
Our first rehearsal of the
2022-2023 season will begin on August 29th. We rehearsal through early June, with our last performance slated around July 4th. Come and join us!
