The Kishwaukee Concert Band before our March, 2017 concert at Northern Illinois University's Boutell Memorial Concert Hall.

The Kishwaukee Concert Band (KCB) is an all-volunteer adult community band composed of experienced musicians from DeKalb, Illinois and surrounding communities. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for woodwind, brass, and percussion musicians, age 18 years and older, who have played in high school or college bands to rehearse and perform concert band repertoire for the enjoyment and education of themselves and of the audiences who attend our concerts. Our varied repertoire includes marches, overtures, musicals, contemporary works, and movie and musical theater tunes.

The Kishwaukee Concert Band is a tax-exempt charitable organization under IRS section 501(c)(3), and contributions to the band are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
