About SBCB

Known as the Sound Beach Volunteer Fire Department Band until 2007, the Sound Beach Community Band (SBCB) has been an Old Greenwich tradition since 1955, providing marching music for the department at parades in Greenwich and other towns in Fairfield and Westchester counties, and performing free public concerts town-wide. Music director Kamper teaches at Westchester Community College and servers as Music Director for the St. Catherine’s Players and the Greenwich Boys & Girls Club.

SBCB entertains throughout the year at community events and venues such as the fireworks in Binney Park, the Independence Day Ceremony at Town Hall and the St. Catherine’s Carnival of Fun. SBCB also marches in the Memorial Day Parade as the Sound Beach Volunteer Fire Department Band. The band is always on hand for Santa’s arrival at the Sound Beach firehouse during the Old Greenwich Merchants’ FIrst Light Festival.

SBCB welcomes new members at any level to join its core of volunteer professional and semi-professional musicians – so dust off that trumpet you played in junior high and join the fun!
