The Legacy

In 1933, a group of civic-minded musicians led by Dr. L. E. Dellinger and T. A. Harn started a band with the goal of providing music for civic and social functions around the city. The Greenville Municipal Band was active until the 1960s.

Not long after, in 1972, a similar group of musicians playing in Furman University's summer Lakeside Music concert series, thought it would be great to revive the musical legacy that started in 1933, and make that kind of musical experience available to the community year-round. They started the Greenville Civic Band, which was renamed the Greenville Concert Band in 2008.

Ever since then, the GCB has grown in both size and in quality of performance. Today, it is one of the finest community bands in the South.
