Band History

The Northwest Suburban Concert Band was formed in 1986 to play the traditional music written for brass and woodwind concert bands. Our music library consists of marches, show tunes, classical, Dixieland, jazz and some polkas.

We practice every Tuesday night from 7:30 to 9:00 PM at Springwood Middle School, 5540 Arlington Drive in Hanover Park.

During the summer months (when school is not in session), the band rehearses at Medinah Park District, 22W130 Thorndale Ave. in Medinah.

We are available to play concerts, indoors or out, and parades riding a float.


We are a true community band welcoming all ages from high school and up, and all levels of playing skills.
We have members from as far away as Chicago and Crystal Lake. There are no fees and no tryouts and enjoy a friendly, noncompetitive atmosphere.

If you enjoy playing, even if you haven't played for years, come join us. We are a great place to get back into making music.
