The Verona Area Concert Band (VACB) provides opportunities for community members to make music. Through regular rehearsals and concerts in the Verona, WI area, the VACB educates, inspires and entertains participating musicians and audiences alike. We aim for high musical and technical standards, perform works for concert band from many musical genres and support a vision of music‐making as a lifelong activity.


VACB musicians come from many different musical backgrounds ranging from members who are continuing their love of playing in high school and college‐level bands to members who have earned degrees in music education and performance.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your musical experience. We’ll add you to our email list so we can keep you informed about the band and so we can send you sign-up information for the next concert.

The VACB welcomes new members to the ensemble at the beginning of each concert cycle.
