The Main Street Community Band was founded in 1979 by Professor Paul L. Kardos for the purpose of establishing an "Old Fashioned Community Concert Band" in the Inland Empire.


All members of the MSCB are volunteer musicians with widely varied careers who enjoy coming together to rehearse and perform traditional and contemporary Concert Band music. Membership is open to wind and percussion players with at least three years of experience or by director approval.  High school age performers may be invited to join based on their high school director's recommendation and the approval of The Main Street Band Music Director.


Rehearsals are held Wednesday night, mid-August to mid-June, from 7:00 to 9:00pm at the Elk's Lodge in San Bernardino, CA. 


Under the direction of Mrs. Lorraine Kardos, the ensemble performs for community events, seasonal celebrations, fundraisers, civic activities, farmer's markets, street fairs and arts festivals. As a nod to the future, we perform joint concerts with local area high schools and colleges.


Joining is easy!  Contact us so we can walk you through the process!
