Rehearsals & Performances

The WCB rehearses at Wylie High School on Sunday afternoons from
2 – 3:30 PM. The WCB has no audition requirement, and strives to balance challenging music, engaging performances and a fun atmosphere.

Wylie Community Band performs most regularly at Wylie High School. The band has presented concerts at the Meyerson Symphony Center, in coordination with Wylie ISD performing groups (bands and choirs.)

    Here is what some of our members are saying:

    I didn’t touch my instrument for 17 years and was very nervous about playing again. The Wylie Community Band is the perfect venue for me! We play music and have fun in an atmosphere that is warm and inviting. Thanks to the WCB, I can see myself playing for a long time!!

    What makes Wylie Community Band special is that it’s truly a community band. WCB attracts local amateur, student and professional musicians of all kinds, and we come together once a week to make music. Ross and Liz Grant will make any North Texas musician feel right at home in Wylie.

    The Wylie Community Band has fulfilled such a musical need in my life, as I have dreamed of being part of a band or orchestra since graduating from high school many years ago. Making music with the WCB under the leadership of our wonderful director, Dr. Ross Grant, brings me such joy. His easy going leadership style, his amazing ability to motivate us to be the best, and his warm personality make our rehearsals such a fun time.

    The Wylie Community Band has been one of my favorite things about moving back to Texas. It’s great to get to play music again with some of my old friends in a laid-back and fun atmosphere and to be a part of the community where I grew up. After using my brain one way all week at work, I really enjoy getting to exercise it in a totally different way at rehearsal on Sundays.
