MUSIC COMMISSIONED BY OR WRITTEN FOR COMMUNITY CONCERT BANDS

ACB Member Joshua E. Long has compiled a list of over 200 compositions that were commissioned by or written for community band. This list started as part of his graduate work during the summer of 2015, and continues to be updated. These titles initially came from his call for titles to members of the Community-Music list, research, and talking to people in the community band movement. The last update was December 19, 2022. Josh, graduated from Penn State in August of 2018 and is currently a music educator, serves on dissertation committee, band director, active clinician, and instrument repair technician specializing in brass. He is the former Director of the Bellefonte Community Band and the Slate Belt Band and is currently directing the Annual Band by the Sea program in Wildwood NJ. His database is provided here as a resource to members of ACB looking for compositions that were aimed at community bands. The database can be downloaded here with the following information – Title, Composer, Band, Location, Purpose of the commission, Year, and Publisher.

If your band has commissioned a piece or you are aware of other titles commissioned for or by community bands, please provide the information by completing the form here. With these additions and others, Josh will periodically provide updates to the database. For more information about his project see  ACB Journal June 2016 issue.
