The Meridian Community College Band was organized in January of 1981, under the direction of Carey Smith. The Community band has an average of 65-80 players since the beginning. The season for the concert band runs from January to July with rehearsals on Sunday afternoon from 2-4 pm. The MCC Band had the distinct honor of playing for President Bush in December of 1991. High school students looking for more playing time and sight-reading may participate on a limited basis (dependent on instrumentation) with a recommendation from their band director. We try to meet the community needs both as listeners and performers and highly encourage community support through attendance and participation.
