The Callanwolde Concert Band is an independent community concert band of adult musicians who decided not to give up music after graduating from school. Formed in 1972 as a summer program of the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center, the band has operated as an independent non-profit corporation since 1984. The alliance with the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center continues in the form of formal concerts at the center and mutual support for a strong performing arts presence in the community. The band is known throughout Georgia for its high level of musicianship and audience appeal, but we are also thought of as Decatur, Georgia’s hometown community band. We are the band that provides Decatur its Independence Day celebration music in the bandstand each year. We play year round, so take a look at our performance schedule. This is music at and from the grass roots, made by your neighbors.
