The Quincy Concert Band is an all-volunteer wind ensemble that performs a spring and fall concert each year. Members of the band come from all walks of life. The band rehearses weekly leading up to performances, which feature a variety of selections.


American Prize
Quincy’s nationally-recognized concert band has twice been awarded second place for the prestigious “American Prize”, a national competition for community band and wind ensembles.  The band won this award in 2015 and again in 2019, besting bands from much larger communities. 

In 2017, the band  performed at the 2017 Illinois Music Education Conference in Peoria. 

Mission Statement:

The Quincy Concert Band is committed to preserving the rich heritage of community bands and quality wind band literature by presenting free concerts of artistic and professional excellence to the Quincy and Tri-state community. Our volunteer, non-profit organization provides its adult members opportunities to perform diverse concert band music for enjoyment, to improve their musical skills, to foster friendship and esprit de corps with fellow musicians from all walks of life, and to nurture a lifelong love of music by all, audience and musicians alike.  


“A Richer, Fuller Life through Music!”


The band was established in 1982 under the name "Breakfast Kiwanis Concert  Band".  Paul Duker was the first conductor. The band performed before the  Kiwanis travelogue series as well as several times in the community. 
After two years under the auspices of the Kiwanis Club, it was established  as a separate entity and the name was changed to the Quincy Community Concert Band. Dale Kimpton became the  conductor of the band in 1984 and set the performance  schedule that is still followed today.  Bill DeMont succeeded Kimpton in 1996, and Dr. Trent Hollinger took the baton in 2010.

 In 2006 the name was changed to The Quincy Concert Band.   In 2018, the name of the corporation was changed to Quincy Concert Band, Inc.
