Since 1922, the Shippensburg Band has been a not-for-profit, all-volunteer organization benefiting the Borough of Shippensburg and its neighboring communities. A variety of pieces from the Band’s library are presented at every concert, with this concert featuring performances of The Magic of Mozart, Of Sea and Song, English Folk Song Suite, Beauty and the Beast, and more.
The Shippensburg Band has gathered many individuals from the Shippensburg, PA, and surrounding communities to make music and share it with others. It is a dynamic group of young and old from all walks of life. The band has survived over the years because of good leadership, the dedication of its members, and excellent community support. We continue to return to the community our quality entertainment enjoyed by people of all ages.
The Shippensburg Band, currently directed by Carl Sponenberg, rehearses on Tuesday nights between 8:00 PM and 9:30 PM at the Shippensburg Church of the Brethren. Anyone who plays a band instrument is invited to come to a rehearsal and join the band!
