Join the Roseville Community Band in celebrating fifty years of making music.
Starting as a community band in the early 1960s, the band played at Fourth of July celebrations at Central Park. Before long they were playing at other venues and the Roseville Community Band grew into one of the top community bands in the Upper Midwest. As their way of thanking the community for years of support, the band is kicking off a summer of free music.

The band provides the opportunity for adult musicians to play for personal satisfaction and to provide a service for the community. Since 1980 the band has awarded a scholarship to an area school musician to further the recipient’s musical endeavors. If you are an alumni member of the RCB you are invited to join the celebration by coming to an event or playing with the band.
