Mission / History


The Vancouver Community Concert Band’s mission is to further the cultural environment of the community, to provide entertainment for the general public at concerts and other performances, and to offer its members an opportunity for personal self-expression through the medium of music. We strive to encourage young musicians by supporting local school band programs.  

Our goal is to preserve and encourage the performance of community concert band music, both traditional and historic, and to make these concerts available to the public by performing at public and private concert venues.


The Vancouver Community Concert Band was established in its current form in 2005 by Dr Jim Rourk as a volunteer organization to share music in and around Clark County, Washington. Performances are generally public and vary from civic and patriotic events to neighborhood festivals and many other local events.

If you would like to have the Vancouver Community Band provide musical entertainment at your next event, please reach out to our Board of Directors via our email VanCCBand@gmail.com. If you are interested in joining the band, please see our Join Us page.
