WCB Associations

Welcome to The Woodlands Concert Band

We truly appreciate the generosity and support of all of our wonderful patrons. Together we make the Woodlands a great community! We would especially like to thank the music ministry at Christ Church United Methodist and The Woodlands Community Presbyterian Church for their dedication to our band. Their generosity allows us to continue to bring the Woodlands community free, quality music.

As always, the band is seeking to play to even more audiences in and around the Woodlands area. If you are interested in having our band or even a small ensemble perform for your organization or church, please contact the music director, Paul Worosello or the board president, Randy Essenberg.

The Woodlands Concert Band is a community organization that allows musicians, from professional to beginner, an opportunity to play and perform with a quality group. It is the only community band in Montgomery County, and members come from all over South Montgomery and North Harris counties with a few even traveling from as far away as Huntsville.

While the band is fortunate to have several members who are trained musicians and local band directors themselves, many within the band are simply amateurs who enjoy continuing to play their instruments. They spend their days in such varied professions as lawyers, accountants, scientists, computer specialists, teachers, and homemakers. The band has regularly welcomed members who are still learning to play, those who haven't played for many years, as well as those who have been playing consistently their whole life. This diversity among the band members creates a feeling of what a community group should be, friends and neighbors coming together to create beautiful music.

With current membership at around 75, the band is excited to be providing quality music to the community and hopes to continue for many years to come.

For those interested in playing with the band, come join us! We rehearse every Thursday night from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at Christ Church United Methodist in the Woodlands, 6363 Research Forest Dr. We have openings in all sections and welcome players of all levels. If you are interested in joining us, please contact our conductor, Paul Worosello, for more details please visit our CONTACT US page.

Flooded Music Replacement


The Woodlands Concert Band is an adult community band that serves the north suburbs of Houston, Texas with a series of concerts and other musical activities. Collaboration with other area bands and a concerto competition for area high school wind and percussion players that last year presented $1500 in prize money to the winners are two of the band’s most recent endeavors.  Founded in 2000 with a membership approaching 90 members, the band is open to anyone who wants to continue making music following high school and college, the great majority of members involved in professions other than music. By charter, concerts are free to the public. The band is supported by donations and a small fee assessed individual players.

Flooding from Hurricane Harvey at the end of August destroyed most of the band’s music library. The facility which was nowhere close to the flood plain and where the library was housed could not handle the 35+ inches of rain that fell on the community, and four feet of water flooded the room. 283 pieces of music, or 63% of the library was destroyed at a replacement cost of $22,994. Unfortunately, some of the music is irreplaceable because it is permanently out of print and no longer available. We are hopeful that with your generous donation, we can get back to the same status we were at before Hurricane Harvey affected the lives of so many. Anything that you can contribute is greatly appreciated.

The Woodlands Concert band is a charitable 501(c)3 organization and all contributions are tax deductible.

 

We have set up a GoFundMe account to raise our goal of $23,000. Will you please help? Click the logo below to donate.
