The Ogden Concert Band was created in 1993 by executive order of the mayor of Ogden City to provide appropriate musical entertainment of the highest quality for the community. A vital element of the mission of the Ogden Concert Band is to provide performance opportunities and means of recognition for the many fine musicians in the Ogden area. The Band has performed at the Utah Arts Festival, the National Motor Coach Association event, the national VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) convention and for the arrival of the Olympic Torch in Ogden in 2002. They have been guests on two occasions of the Hof Germany Festival and have performed at a festival in Taiwan.
Band members include teachers, university graduates, students, and others from the community. Dr. Thomas Root, a professor in the Performing Arts Department and head of the band program at Weber State University serves as director along with Dr. Darrell Lund as associate director.
The band’s repertoire includes traditional band concert music such as Copland, Gould, Bernstein, Webber, Williams and Holst, plus Sousa marches, patriotic songs, show tunes and movie theme scores.
