Help the Mighty Sound of Maryland get the Best Band Van in the Land

The band has just launched a new crowdfunding event to raise funds for a new Band Van, which they desperately need. 

Director Rich Sparks is excited about the effort.  "Campus has invited us to raise funds on this campus-sponsored fundraising event online.  We have spent a great deal of time talking about this with the new Leadership of the Marching Band, and we are confident that this program can work for us.  As a result of our working with the campus Development Office on this project, we have their full attention for the first time in my 30 years here on campus."  

The program launched on April 18th, and will close on May 18th.  Donors should donate in the specific name of a current band member.  If you don't know a current band member, please donate in the name of L. Richmond Sparks.  For more information about the program, or to donate, please go to:

Community Band Concert April 4 at CSPAC - All Welcome

On Wednesday evening, April 4 at 8:00 PM, the MARYLAND COMMUNITY BAND will present a concert with the U of MD University Band in the Dekelboum Concert Hall of the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center on campus in College Park.  Each group will present about 35 minutes of music on this annual free and open to the public concert.  I am extremely proud of the 75-member MCB for their hard work and amazing progress over the years.  Being able to present a program with this level of difficulty is proof of their dedication and love for performing great music.  Last year many of you were able to attend when we presented Emerson Head and the trumpet trio and I hope you can be with us again this year.
